The Broken Wing Project in Deland, FL is a non-profit organization that teaches combat wounded veterans how to fly in light sport aircraft. These veterans, who were at the top of their physical games when they were wounded are left with wounds that many times required the amputation of one or more of their limbs. The Broken Wing Project gives these warriors the chance to earn their Sport Pilot Certificates, free of charge.
In this video, Lito Santos, one of the Broken Wing Project students, relates how he learned of the Broken Wing Project and how it is giving him the opportunity to realize his dream of becoming a pilot.
Lea Creative will team with the Broken Wing Project to shoot and produce a documentary that will be shown in film festivals around the US and the world.
