A child's impression of his or her first flight is no doubt contingent on the excitement/fear factor instilled by the parents. But for the child who thinks an airplane is merely a magnificent flying machine, the notion of actually undertaking a plane ride may precipitate any number of feelings. A plane is a lot bigger up close than when you're at a comfortable distance watching it sail up into the air. With a cozy, home-like feel, and forgivably corny music, Cleared for Takeoff follows the adventures of two kids venturing to visit Grandma and explains each step of the trip, including everything that leads up to boarding. Real United Airlines pilot Captain Herb guides the viewer through the control tower, the baggage claim, the runway, the cockpit, and other areas. This simple and engaging film is an excellent introduction to air travel for the child on his or her way to their first flight, or for the child who is fascinated by airplanes. --N.F. Mendoza
