FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Making aviation waves, Sky Limo Air Charter reports it will make its first Intracoastal "landing" this weekend in Florida's 39th annual Winterfest Boat Parade, expected to attract one million attendees. Earlier this week, the Florida-based full service aviation company made headline news as it spent hours traveling through Fort Lauderdale by police escort preparing to make its landing in this year's Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade.
The 48-foot long, 8-passenger, twin-engine Sabre 60 jet aircraft was sought after by Sky Limo's Tom Conlan, when he thought of a Frank Sinatra-inspired "Fly Me to the Moon" theme for this year's parade.
"With a little help from our friends at World Jet, along with the jet and lunar backdrop, the completed float will have dancing flight attendants, black-tie businessmen and a Frank Sinatra impersonator with a deejay playing his music," said Conlan, president and owner of Sky Limo Corporation.
"Taking part in this year's Winterfest Boat Parade was an easy decision," Conlan continued. "We wanted to do something that (to our knowledge) has never been done before, while at the same time encouraging a family atmosphere amongst our employees. This was a project everyone here could have some fun with, as well as be able to celebrate the holiday season while doing something special for the community."
Being involved in charity, and the community in general, is important to Sky Limo, which is why the company decided to launch a cooperative effort with the United States Marine Corps "Toys for Tots" campaign. For its Winterfest entry this year, Sky Limo is mounting the aircraft a few feet up in the air, leaving an open area to be filled with donated toys directly beneath the aircraft. The goal is to launch a "Toys for Tots" collection site at the launch location for Saturday's Winterfest Parade.
"Sky Limo is a company that is always looking to further immerse itself in the community where its employees work and live," said Conlan. "And we strongly feel that this is a unique opportunity to do exactly that."
Spectators can view the Winterfest Boat Parade along Fort Lauderdale's Riverwalk starting at 6 p.m. on December 11, 2010.
