A message from the Chairman of the Board:

On behalf of the Board of Directors, thank you for visiting this website bringing to life the man behind the Spirit of St. Louis, Mr. Donald A. Hall Sr.  Flying Over Time is reengaging a new generation through art, storytelling, and the science behind the 1927 flight.


Flying Over Time (FOT) is a non-profit 501-(c)(3) educational charitable organization.  We started working with Arizona State University (ASU) by prototyping a traveling exhibit that combined fine art and history. Our name was coined by Leandro Soto, fine arts professor and performance artist.  In that creative endeavor, we discovered how kids interacted differently when combining  the art + history + the science of the Spirit of St. Louis.  Originally we offered a framework and story of engineering to teach girls and children of today about how and why Lindbergh flew over the Atlantic.  That first transatlantic flight was the start of many changes to come to our globalized world through trade.  By teaching the facts of the methods used in the 1920’s, we paint a future for those who will dream the next “Lindy-Hop” forward.


It is our hope to support this through community events and scholarship for students for the legacy of Donald A. Hall Sr and for ours as Americans in this new century.
