Classic Aviation Films to Watch in Quarantine

A few people watching a movie

Since most of us are in quarantine, what better way to spend the time than by watching some classic aviation films! If you’re missing the skies, check out the following movies to get your fix!

Classic Aviation Movies

  • Top Gun – With the sequel ‘Top Gun Maverick’ being released in the fall, now is the perfect time to re-watch the original!
  • The Aviator – The Aviator is the story of aviation legend, Howard Hughes. It chronicles his successes and his eventual deterioration into madness and isolation.
  • Flight – This aviation drama is about a pilot who makes a miraculous landing. The investigation that follows only leads to more questions and the pilot’s life is exposed to the public.
  • Hot Shots! – A hilarious parody of fighter pilot movies, Hot Shots! is definitely the film to turn to if you’re in search of some comic relief.
  • Sully – The depiction of the events that occurred on January 15th, 2009, Sully is about the heroic actions of Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger. After striking a bird, and with no time to divert to an airport, Sully miraculously made an emergency landing on the waters of the Hudson River.

This is a strange time for the world and an especially unprecedented time for aviation. Here at Elevate Aviation, we understand the anxiety that is being felt and want to help you feel confident about your future as a pilot.
