Were You Inspired by Top Gun?

Did you become a pilot after seeing the classic 1986 film? If so, we want to hear from you.

It’s been nearly 40 years since Top Gun was released, triggering the world to feel a “need for speed.”

The movie, according to the U.S. Navy, spawned a surge of interest among those seeking to become pilots, but the effects rippled beyond the military and across all facets of flying, including general aviation.

As we excitedly await the movie’s release, we’d like to hear from you, our readers. Did Top Gun influence you to become a pilot?
