RAINBOW COLORED PRIVATE JET FLIES SPECIAL KIDS

A private jet has been painted in bright rainbow colors to salute Make-A-Wish who grants wishes to seriously ill children. The Lear Jet model 35 aircraft is named the “Dream Chaser” and it is taking some children from Make-A-Wish on flight over their town. The one-of-a-kind jet will visit six cities in the western United States over a week period flying the local children from each city on the following schedule each day:

Thursday May 23, 2019 10:00am Denver, CO—Centennial Airport
Thursday May 23, 2019 2:00pm Colorado Springs, CO—Colorado Springs Airport
Friday May 24, 2019 10:00am Albuquerque, NM—Aluquerque Airport
Tuesday May 28, 2019 10:00am Santa Ana, CA—Orange County Airport
Wednesday May 29, 2019 10:00am Los Angeles, CA—Burbank Airport
Wednesday May 29, 2019 3:00pm Salt Lake City, UT—SLC International Airport

The children will get an opportunity to sit in the airplane cockpit and talk to the pilots before their flight and they will each receive a hat and T-shirt featuring the rainbow jet to commemorate their day. At the completion of their flight they will write their name on the side of the airplane. The flights provide these Make-A-Wish kids a rare chance to take to the skies in the 500 mile per hour jet which normally rents for over $3,000.00 per hour.

The Lear Jet has been donated by International Jet Aviation, an aircraft charter company based in Denver, Colorado. They originated the idea of a special paint scheme on one of their airplanes to salute and recognize the Make-A-Wish and to fly some of these special kids on a magic flight. The airplane will remain in this color scheme for about ten days.

"Many of our employees volunteered their own time to make this project possible,” said Lynn Krogh, CEO of International Jet Aviation. “It gives us all a chance to give back something to the community and it is rewarding to bring something special to the lives of the Make-A-Wish children."
