My name is Jim Churchman, creator of the Flying Hero Club. My 25-year career as a Stunt Coordinator includes some of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster superhero movies, where I specialized in making performers fly. Now I want to share that feeling with young people who can benefit from the experience the most.
The crew is some of the most skilled, compassionate people on the planet. We have traveled the world together, fought through low moments, bonded during high moments, and forged friendships for life. When I told them what I want to do - every single one jumped at the opportunity to spread some love through our craft.
The Flying Hero Club will set up a computerized flying system, the same system that has flown the likes of: Kate Beckinsale, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Halle Berry, Robert Downey Jr., Benedict Cumberbatch, and more. The kids will then be flown on a bellyboard, where they are free to act like their favorite superheroes. If they cannot lie on a bellyboard, we can pick them up, right in their wheelchair! We want every able little warrior to enjoy the power of flight! They will fly approximately 100 feet across a given location, at around 4 feet high. We will start them slow and increase the fun according to their comfort level.
Anywhere we can make kids smile! Our goal is to start at children's hospitals around the country. For a lot of kids travel is difficult, so by going to their location, we make it accessible for them. Beyond that, the sky is the limit. We have already been approached to do events for special athletes. Camps, schools, and conventions are also in the works.
