Hi All,

Thanks to all of you who have participated so far. We’ve been overwhelmed with the response, and some of the answers have been truly inspiring.

Also thanks to you who have just entered the drawing, there’s no need to write us anything, we just want to share our passion with you and we look forward to showing you more of the movie and more of the answers in the near future. The map at right shows roughly where your answers have been coming from.

AMIR IZADI CANADA
…because flying is the intersection of two of my strongest emotions: love and fear.

And from our own David Dagault who was disqualified for going over 40 words, but we love his answer anyway: “Do you ask people why do they breath? It’s normal, natural! You fly because you’re alive. Once it will be all over, you won’t be able to anymore. So you fly because you live, and you want to live because you can fly!

Cheers from all the Team, enjoy the coming spring (or fall, wherever you are)!
