Our Mission at Flying Over Time:  To inspire creative minds through innovation and exploration with STEM Aviation by bringing history to life.

Through our outreach, exhibition and speaking events, we teach lessons of innovation and risk-taking by emphasizing the lessons of: the $25,000 Ortieg Prize, Charles Lindbergh’s dream, Donald Hall’s 60-day challenge and how building a fearless team succeeded in planning the flights of the Spirit of St. Louis


What can you expect from investing in our 501-c3?

Flying Over Time teaches lessons of the past to life with vivid storytelling. Custom messages for a variety of audiences is our specialty. Our experience with schools, colleges, and business owners allow us to inspire innovative thinking through unique formats based on relatively simple teaching models like the Spirit of St. Louis. For example, Mr. Hall speaks to elementary/high school children about the “Spirit of Risk Taking”:

  • The untold stories of how scientific planning contributed to the Spirit of St. Louis winning the Ortieg Prize
  • How being the underdog is a great opportunity
  • When nurturing big dreams and team-building is a success strategy
  • Why committing totally leads to success and integrity

Your support matters! With funding cuts in education budgets around the country, Flying Over Time’s ability to inspire these lessons for free is directly relational to your investment in education. Particular schools or broad sponsorship in educational/exhibition tours make a huge difference.

 Spirit of St. Louis | Donald A. Hall Sr. | Charles Lindbergh

In 1927, the world discovered a young airmail pilot named Charles Lindbergh and his famous aircraft designer, Donald A. Hall Sr. Lindbergh became the most famous man alive by braving the Atlantic Ocean. He had flown solo, in a uniquely aerodynamic airplane, built in San Diego and engineered for one death-defying flight. No one expected him to survive. The airplane had been designed by Ryan Airlines new Chief Engineer, Donald A. Hall Sr., and the “Spirit of St. Louis” had performed perfectly.

Built in 60 days, it allowed Lindbergh to take off in New York City and land in Paris after 33 1/2 hours. Lindbergh beat two of his close competitors, forever establishing his place in aviation history and winning $25,000.

After the flight, Lindbergh’s celebrity and influence continued. Yet for this young and shy 25 year old, nothing would ever be the same. As the years passed, his fame would continue to change the world, stretching into the 30’s, through World War II, and into the space age, well beyond his death in 1974. In his lifetime, Charles Lindbergh would see himself championed by many, reviled by others, and yet always respected for his first flight of faith in Donald A. Hall’s design. The first man to fly non-stop from New York to Paris. more
