Enjoy the Full Length Film In Super HD (1080p)
On a Wing and a Prayer: An American Muslim Learns to Fly follows Monem Salam, an American-born Muslim with a very inconvenient dream: since childhood he has wanted to get his pilot's license. Several years after 9/11, he decides it's safe to try. The call from the FBI is only the beginning of his problems. The film alternates between gentle humor and white-knuckle moments as it delves into the life of a devout Muslim American family as they pursue happiness and the American dream.
This award-winning documentary has premiered on PBS and now available in stunning high definition through our UPF Theater.

Help Us Support Peace Through the Media
As a non-profit organization, UPF creates films and education campaigns aimed at increasing understanding among people of different faiths and cultures, especially among Muslims and other faiths.
To enable us to continue that mission and tell the next important story, we charge a small fee to watch the full length film. We've got a great discount on a package of our entire film library that is about the cost of a couple of films. Payments are processed securely, and once your payment is processed, you'll have immediate and unlimited viewing access to the film for 30 days. If you opt to purchase our entire package of films, your viewing access is extended to a full year and you’ll automatically receive access to any films we release in that period.
To maximize your viewing options, you can also purchase access to this film on Google Play and Apple iTunes. However, rental periods on these platforms are shorter than our own 30 day period (sometimes as little as 24 hours), and they don't offer a package that covers our entire film library.
Whether it's via our own UPF Theater or the third-party platform of your choice, enjoy our films!
