Classic Watercraft Giveaway Happening Now at 11 TAC Air FBO Locations


TEXARKANA, Texas (May 15, 2007) – TAC Air, providing fixed-base operation (FBO) aviation services at 11 locations nationwide, plans to give away a fully-restored, antique watercraft as part of its “You’re the Big Fish at TAC Air” campaign.

The campaign invites pilots to come to TAC Air where they’ll be treated like the big fish in TAC Air’s small pond—meaning, the FBO chain’s more than 300 associates will treat customers with excellent customer service and the best line service available. As in past years, this campaign includes the giveaway of a major prize just as impressive as previous prizes which include a 2007 Hummer H3, a restored 1957 Thunderbird convertible and a vintage 1945 yellow Piper Cub.

This year’s giveaway is “Timeless”, a classic 1959 Chris-Craft Capri Runabout and one of the 1950s most popular upscale boat designs. The boat’s records show that only 64 of these models were built in 1959, and only 12 remain in working condition. “Timeless”, valued at over $45,000, has won multiple contests for pristine upkeep and restoration.

On the heels of the overwhelmingly successful presentation of last year’s Hummer H3 giveaway, TAC Air will again sponsor three finalists to attend the NBAA Meeting and Convention in Atlanta September 25-27. “Timeless” will be given away at 2 p.m. at the TAC Air booth #805 on Wednesday, September 26.

Entries for the giveaway of “Timeless” are available when visiting any TAC Air location until the August 15 deadline. Limit is one entry per person per day. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries received. Entrants must be at least 18 years old and be able to attend the NBAA Meeting and Convention in September.
