Take-off TV – films from the world of aviation.

Watch how aircraft are flown and witness exciting flights to fascinating destinations.

Films with English voice over or subtitles are available at the YouTube channel.

The cockpit videos are available on Blu-ray (3D) and as Video on Demand (VoD). All of them include audio-commentaries from the flight captains. “Flight in the cockpit” means that you witness take-offs and landings in the cockpit. The films are made for a generally aviation-interested audience – you do not need special previous knowledge in order to enjoy them. But by choosing video and audio tracks you can enter more deeply into the details.

Furthermore we sell some cool aviation stuff:

> Tag with inscription “Remove Before Flight”
> Luggage tag with jet image
> Messenger bag “Flight Recorder”

Have fun browsing on the Take-off website!
