AARP Studios blasts stereotypes in new production

Continuing its commitment to producing digital series that explore and document people living life to the fullest and defying expectations, AARP Studios has announced the launch of Badass Pilot: The Series, the company said.

The unscripted five-part digital series follows jet pilot Art Nalls and his unique journey to buy and fly one of the rarest and most elusive planes in the world.

The original series showcases the retired test pilot´s passionate pursuit to restore and share a piece of military history becoming one of the only private citizens to own and fly a sea harrier jet. Across the five episodes, viewers will witness Nalls´ journey as he purchases the jet and reassembles it from more than 5,000 parts. Returning the Harrier jet to its former glory, Nalls and his team of retired pilots and aircraft mechanics show what is possible at any age.

The digital series will be released weekly starting November 14 throughout mid-December. The first episode, How to Buy a Harrier Jet is now live on AARP Studios YouTube page.
