London Marathon

It seems a shame, that with glorious weather over the South-east of England today, nobody thought of placing an Airads skybanner over the start of the London Marathon!

We did try and contact several large sporting companies but as is normally the case these days, voicemail is the default and any attempt at sending an email is likely to find itself caught by the corporate spam filter.

As the London Marathon is only minutes away from our operating hub at Rochester, the cost of an hour's flight would have been less than than £500+VAT, something to think about for next year perhaps?

Football Crazy

May 5th is a football fiesta for us with banners going-up over Manchester City vs. Manchester United and Newscastle United vs. Blackburn. From our own selfish point of view it's a shame that the FA Cup Final has moved back to Wembley as we can't overfly the new stadium.

With restrictions around London, we can just about reach, Spurs, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Millwall and Charlton Athletic for London matches though.

Local Elections

Airads has been asked to fly over Southampton and Portsmouth on May 2nd and 3rd to encourage people to take part in the local election. It's going to be a long job, six hours each, reminding people that their vote counts in the local elections.

Here's a photograph from the last General Election, when Labour and John Reid joined Airads as we flew around the country. - It's the old aircraft.

The new aircraft G-CEKI, has now arrived at Southampton docks and will, with luck be flying in time for the beginning of June.

If you are planning on an aerial banner this summer, then book know, as the weekends are starting to fill.

Wakefield to Weymouth

The first real weekend of the 2007 season saw Airads operating from Wakefield to Weymouth.

Among the flights, a large split banner advertising "The Ministry of Sound" was flown between Maidstone and Eastbourne, two hours were spent over the beach at Weymouth on Easter Sunday and an 85th birthday was celebrated in Ramsgate.

From now on, the demand for aerial advertising will rise until it reaches its seasonal peak at the end of July and so if you haven't booked a weekend date for the summer yet, know is a good time to avoid disappointment.
