JNE Aircraft is a small, one-man, aircraft restoration shop located in the Pacific Northwest.
John Norman is an FAA certified A&P mechanic who also maintains his IA certification.
Despite the many challenges encountered along the way, the Phase One Flight Testing (as required by the FAA) was completed during the summer of 2021.
With THAT hurdle accomplished, the airplane then became the subject of a documentary film!
This film is about building and flying the definitive reproduction "SPIRIT of St. LOUIS"
... but it is also about the "DREAM" John had to accomplish the feat ...
and the exhilaration we all experienced when she finally did
We were able to show this film to a 'test audience' at the Museum of Flight in Seattle in June 2023
where we received valuable feedback from the audience, that helped us make some changes to the film prior to submitting it to Sundance for consideration to premier at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
