Harrison Ford strolled through the open hangar door three hours early and immediately began chatting with the crew busy setting up lights and cameras. “You look so familiar. Haven’t we worked together before?” he asked a cameraman. The cameraman, seemingly stunned that Ford would remember, nodded. Arrive early. Stay late. Don’t quit until it’s perfect. Those seem to be Ford’s requirements of himself—even when he’s volunteering his time and powerful presence to a cause such as the GA Serves America Campaign. AOPA Editor in Chief Tom Haines spent a day interviewing and flying with the famed actor. In this video, Haines describes how the consummate pilot infused his own passion for flying and everything general aviation into the TV and radio commercials for the GA Services America campaign.
