MustangFest - No, Its Not What You Think

by John M. White |

This is a Press Release from my friend at MustangFest 2010: Cirrus Aircraft to market private jets at MustangFest 2010 MUSTANG ISLAND, TX - Producers of Mustang Island's annual MustangFest are readying for the arrival of Cirrus' factory-authorized pilot and Regional Sales Director Adam Hahn on Saturday October 2, 2010. In charge of Cirrus Aircraft's sales in the Austin region of Texas, Hahn is a knowledgeable, professional pilot and hands-on salesman for the entire line of Cirrus aircraft, including the Vision SF50 Personal Jet. Multiple aircraft manufacturers have been invited to exhibit at MustangFest 2010 and Cirrus Aircraft is the first jet aircraft designer or manufacturer to schedule an aviation exhibit during their annual Mustang celebration on Mustang Island; event producers are expecting to hear from other jet aircraft manufacturers over time. During the day (at Island Moorings Yacht Club and Marina - next to Mustang Beach Airport on the north side of Piper Blvd.) on Saturday October 2nd, look for Cirrus' Aviation Exhibitor Booth with full-color video presentations, Vision SF50 printed literature, an actual Vision SF50 sales pro on-premises and a factory-new Cirrus SR22 Turbo aircraft and/or SF50 aircraft mockup on display at MustangFest 2010. The Coastal Bend is home to several Cirrus SR22s, so look for more Cirrus (and other popular aircraft) owners to fly in - based on local weather and personal schedules. Cirrus Aircraft at MustangFest As one of the most-popular of Corpus Christi's barrier islands and long-considered a playground for the wealthiest of Texans, Mustang Island is home to eight (8) of the top thirty-five (35) revenue-producing hotel properties in the state of Texas. In fact, Mustang Island is home to the State's #1 revenue-producing property and the local marinas are filled much of the year with sailboats and yachts that are based in Port Aransas. Seaside luxury homes abound and the upscale restaurants are plentiful on Mustang Island - Port Aransas boasts more than 4,000 condos, suites and rooms in a variety of accommodations from economy to deluxe to several high-rise luxury condominiums. Embraced by the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce, the annual MustangFest has grown to be appreciated by the local media, too. Look for local Corpus Christi TV cameras surrounding the arrival of the annual Cruise To MustangFest™. Both newspaper and broadcast TV news crews are expected to (again this year) cover the cruise, the wild horse adoption, the jet and high-performance airplanes and the Mile Of Mustangs throughout the weekend - KIII-TV (ABC) has invited MustangFest producers to come back to the station for two live segments on Friday October 1st - including one segment during Good Morning America at 7:25am. Well-maintained and currently home to only one private jet (a CJ1), Mustang Beach Airport (KRAS) has multiple instrument approaches and the typical real estate restrictions of a GA (general aviation) airport. Mustang Island's host city, Port Aransas (or 'Port A', as the locals call it), is home to the annual MustangFest in early October... and this year, as an Aviation Exhibitor/Vendor, the Cirrus Aircraft Corporation will educate affluent 'Mustang Islanders' and local Corpus Christi Bay Area aircraft owners on the features and benefits of their upcoming Vision SF50 personal jet. According to MustangFestproducer Tom Hartford, "The Vision SF50 personal jet is a great fit for Mustang Beach Airport, as very few jets can operate into and out of Mustang Island's 3,500-foot instrument runway. The aviation element of MustangFest is important to year-round and seasonal residents alike, as so many of them are very affluent, and can not only afford - but appreciate a personal jet that will get them to Dallas in just ninety minutes or to Houston in less than an hour." This year, the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) officially joins the MustangFest family of exhibitors. VIPs like Mayor Joe Adame (Corpus Christi), CVB Director Don Arnold, Commodore Scott P. Coolidge (Commanding Officer the U.S. Navy's TW-4 training wing) and other dignitaries have been contacted - and invited to MustangFest's VIP party. The BLM is expected to arrive on Friday with approximately twenty (20) yearling Mustangs up for public adoption on the Mile Of Mustangs at MustangFest. Hundreds of upscale, classic and late-model Mustang and Shelby owners will display millions of dollars worth of immaculate collector vehicles. Departing from all around the nation, the high-dollar Shelbys and Mustangs are cruising from eight (8) states including Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas - some Shelbys in collections are valued at more than a half-million ($500,000) dollars each. With nearby seasonal residents like George Strait, other musicians and Texas business leaders, the 'Texas Riviera' or 'Coastal Bend' is perfect for marketing a progressive company like Cirrus Aircraft. The airport is well-maintained and it is 'just right' for very light jets and personal jets. In fact, many of Port A's residents already own an airplane based at Mustang Beach Airport, and the airport's current T-hangars are just the right size for the Vision SF50 - a perfect fit... as they say. Producers still have one luxury penthouse on top of a popular luxury condominium reserved for one more of their Aviation Exhibitors' hospitality and accommodations - not all RSVPs are in yet. For more details about participating, prospective exhibitors and VLJ owners may get more information by calling 210-399-7500.

It's a Destination.™ DESTINATION: MustangFest™ Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch! JetAviator7 Basic Flying 1: Try to stay in the middle of the air. 2: Do not go near the edges of it. 3: The edges of the air can be recognised by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there. - anon ps: Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter "All Things Aviation" here!
