SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA, AUGUST 8, 2012 – Bruce’s Custom Covers announced today the winner of its custom-fitted aircraft cover awarded to Gateway To Oshkosh Fly-in participant Brad Harman of Texas. Bruce’s Custom Covers is the recognized innovation and quality leader in protective covers for airplanes, jets, helicopters, gliders, off-link jet engines and more.
Gateway To Oshkosh (GTO) is an annual event and home to more than 65 aircraft during AirVenture Oshkosh. GTO offers a convenient and affordable way for fly-in participants to experience AirVenture — billed as “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.” Participants fly in, park their aircraft and stay in nearby Stevens Point, Wisconsin. In addition to transportation to/from AirVenture, GTO offers daily events and brings together pilots and fans of flying.
GTO, in its eleventh year, is organized by Cessna Owner Organization and Piper Owner Society. The two groups represent owner/operators of single and light twin engine aircraft of their respective manufacturer. Bruce’s Custom Covers chose to donate a custom-fitted aircraft canopy cover to show aircraft owners of this type the many benefits of covering an aircraft. Covers designed for single and twin engine Cessna, Piper, and similar aircraft offer year-round protection from the elements and enhance the safety, utility and operation of any aircraft.
A delighted winner, Brad Harman, commented, “My boys wanted to attend Oshkosh. I had done the North 40 [AirVenture general aviation camping area] and really enjoyed it. We were meeting some folks flying commercial and [getting there] was problematic and I wasn’t sure about three boys in a tent in 100-degree weather anyway. The GTO seemed like a good option. It ended up being fantastic, convenient, great people, food, and cold drinks. The Saturday and Sunday in Steven’s Point was as much fun as Oshkosh itself. You get to know several aviators, just like being in the North 40, but don’t have to cook or stay in a tent. The kids get to swim in a pool at night and we had wonderful dinners! The prize, a Bruce’s Custom Cover was a fantastic bonus. I was considering buying one at the show. My [Piper PA-23] Aztec is always hangared so it is painful to see it sitting out in the sun and rain; the cover will be the Aztec’s home away from home.”
