The recently expanded Sky Limo Air Charter gets ready
for its close-up
There’s something alluring about a private jet on the runway, ready to whisk passengers to an exclusive destination. Chris LaVoie, who is producing a new South Florida-based reality show called Top Recruiter, must think so. He recently filmed at Sky Limo Air Charter, located at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Photos show him flanked by his wife, Mory, and a team of female cast members with a Beechjet 400A as the backdrop.
For Sky Limo, a full-service aviation company that provides charters, aircraft maintenance and management, the filming was novel. However, the appearance of jet-setting clientele, including celebrities, is all in a day’s work, says Rush Holson, vice president of business development. Since 1998, the company has flown more than 25,000 hours, carrying charter passengers – and in some cases their pets – throughout the United States, the Caribbean, Canada, Mexico and other points around the globe.
The company recently opened a 20,000-square-foot hangar that can hold up to 15 aircraft and provide space for maintenance, round-the-clock fueling, catering and onsite concierge service. An additional 10,000 square-feet of entertainment space accommodates 500 guests for private gatherings amid the private jets.
Viewers may catch a glimpse of Sky Limo when Top Recruiter airs this fall at www.toprecruiter.tv. Meanwhile, LaVoie says he is shopping the concept to TV outlets, where he hopes it will fly.
