Hoover Featured Film

Hoover half pWhat do you give a legendary pilot for his 93rd birthday? How about a feature film. Bob Hoover, who turned 93 early this year, is the subject of a feature-length documentary titled “Flying the Feathered Edge,” a copy of which will be given to Twin Commander owners and operators at the University. The film uses vintage photos, rare historical footage, and testimonials from Harrison Ford, Carroll Shelby, Burt Rutan, Dick Rutan, Medal of Honor recipient Col. Bud Day, Gene Cernan, Clay Lacy, and Sean D. Tucker to document Hoover’s “precision flying, gentlemanly demeanor, and aviation knowledge.” “Flying the Feathered Edge” currently is available on DVD and BluRay exclusively at
