A Message from
Captain Visser

As a pilot, I see children boarding for their first flight, their minds burning with questions. I know because I wanted to be a pilot since I was three years old.


Now that I am a professional pilot, I want to share my love of aviation and do my best to answer those burning questions!


Unfortunately, I found that the resources for kids were either too cumbersome or only focused on the glamour of becoming a pilot. These resources missed the bigger picture of aviation--the engineering challenges and incredible technologies, the various careers, the future of sustainable fuels...the very science of flight! 

There’s Magic in the Air is a complete package for reaching, teaching, and inspiring kids about aviation and the role it plays in a brighter, greener future. It is professional content created by a pilot and designed with curriculum experts.

Here's to inspiring the next generation to take to the skies! 

Put wings on your dreams!
