It's been a few weeks now, and DeCamillis has logged over 8 hours of flight time even though he can't ultimately get his license.
"I see this an opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream. It's not about overcoming disability; it's about living my life. I've seen so many people forgo their dreams as a result of traditional notions of disability, and I want to share what is possible when we work together across ability; doing so isn't charity or inspiration, it's life," DeCamillis said.
Jason DeCamillis holds a visual impairment special education teaching certificate in the state of Michigan, and recently graduated from both Eastern Michigan University's Special Education Teacher Preparation Program (BA '14), and the University of Michigan's Educational Leadership and Policy Program (MA ' 15).
DeCamillis is currently working on an independent documentary film of his experience titled "Flying Blind" , to be completed in 2016, and is raising funds via Indiegogo in order to complete the project.
