Eho!

On this post I would like to share with a philanthropic cause, the
MMBF was founded by Matthew Martino, a Zimbabwean English film producer, Martino is known for his pilots manual Lets Fly and the subsequent Lets Fly Academy. Martino always had a strong passion for aviation which led to the publishing of his pilots manual Lets Fly, and later its documentary.
Trying to join both passions (film and aviation) and his will to help other filmmakers, Martino founded MMBF. You can learn more about Martino reading his biography on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_C_Martino
