The sight is almost magical -- a tiny airplane writing gigantic messages across the sky. This is skywriting. It began in England in 1922 when a British war ace skywrote the worlds first aerial message. Captain Allen J. Cameron, an American pilot, brought the art to the United States in the autumn of 1922 and wrote "Hello U.S.A." over New York City.

Skywriting is an aviation technique created by vaporizing fluid in the plane's exhaust system to form letters in the sky.  Each letter is about one-mile high, and the average message is written across a 10-mile slate of sky.  On a clear day, each letter can be seen for up to 30 miles in any direction from the ground. Thats over 2,800 square miles for each message written. As the wind drifts the skywritten words, even more people see them!

Skywriting is a highly effective way to get YOUR MESSAGE in front of thousands of people at one time.  Olivers Flying Circus can write almost anything almost anywhere - over your city, a stadium, an arena, a special event, the lake... you get the idea.  The only requirement is suitable weather.

No airspace waivers or special permits are needed.
