Steve Tupper AKA Stephen Force Steve Tupper, AKA Stephen Force, joins us as we discuss the movie AcroCamp, Civil Air Patrol and AirVenture. We also battle the Skype gods as Mike transitions between human and cyborg forms.

This episode of the Pilot's Journey Podcast is brought to you by WindTee where you can find high quality T Shirts with creative aviation designs.

Idaho Aviation Association Mike discusses the recent aviation expo presented by the Idaho Aviation Association and execution of his first paid commercial pilot gig.

PilotStu juggles with scheduling and vacations as he and his checkride examiner manage to avoid each other for another few weeks.

Steve fills us in on his recent trip to Mackinac Island Airport (KMCD).

AcroCamp In May of 2010 Steve started principal photography on the movie AcroCamp where four ordinary pilots from around the country gathered in southeast Michigan. The two men and two women had experience ranging from 300 hours to 12,000 hours, but none had a tail wheel endorsement or any aerobatic experience.

Over the course of five days, these pilots flew almost constantly, challenging themselves to perform maneuvers many had never even thought of trying. Steve and his volunteer crew spent those five days (and frequently sleepless nights) feeding cameras, charging batteries, ingesting video, coordinating logistics and all other manner of manic production activities.

Now, Steve, not even done with last year's film, is already deep into planning for AcroCamp II. At the time of recording, the casting call was out and applications were starting to come in. Shooting is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid or late August 2011.
