Industry relationships proved invaluable when we were asked to arrange a fly-by for a wealthy CEO’s gender reveal party on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Arranging a fly-by for a gender reveal party

In July 2022, a wealthy CEO asked us to charter two stunt planes for a gender reveal party. The client wanted the aircraft to perform a five-minute smoke-trail show over the ocean as guests watched from the balcony of their penthouse apartment in Surfers’ Paradise, before releasing pink or blue smoke to reveal the gender of their fourth child. With under two weeks to go until the party, we sprung into action to bring the client’s vision to life.

Our Solution

Route: Gold Coast, Australia

Aircraft: Yakovlev Yak-55, Pitts Special S-2B

Our experienced team leveraged their industry connections to quickly find an operator who could carry out this complex request, which was only possible via an aircraft charter.

Once we’d secured the aircraft, we worked around the clock to secure government approvals and import coloured smoke for the big reveal.
