Local filmmaker produces sixth aviation documentary

WICHITA — Brian FitzGerald of FitzGerald Video spent 18 months producing his latest documentary, Ultralight Flying Millennium 2, or UFM2 for short.

FitzGerald made the film to chronicle the current state of ultralight flying in the U.S., he said. He’s added music he’s written and recorded.

The film features the five areas of flying an ultralight — fixed wings, trikes, powered parachutes, powered powergliders and helicopters, he said. FitzGerald completed extensive interviews with flyers in each of the areas.

Music video segments are sprinkled throughout the video to provide what he calls the “romance of flying.”

The film is three hours and 15 minutes long. For information on the video, visit his website
