Presented by GEICO
Now celebrating it’s 14th year, the 2016 Atlantic City Airshow will return to the skies above the beautiful free beaches and Boardwalk of Atlantic City on Wednesday, August 17, 2016. GEICO will be the presenting sponsor for the second year, as announced by Greater Atlantic City Chamber President Joseph Kelly, the show’s organizer.
“We have had a great working relationship and history with GEICO as performers in past shows,” said Greater Atlantic City Chamber President Joseph Kelly. “We now look forward to the benefits that their presenting sponsorship continues to bring to the event,” he added.
“Thunder over the Boardwalk is a great event and Atlantic City offers the perfect setting for an airshow,” said Ted Ward, GEICO vice president. “We are pleased to serve as the presenting sponsor, which gives us ample opportunities to connect with the fans as they enjoy an impressive display of airmanship.”
The Atlantic City Airshow is a community partnership between the Greater Atlantic City Chamber; the City of Atlantic City; the 177th Fighter Wing of the N.J. Air National Guard; South Jersey Transportation Authority; FAA William J. Hughes Tech Center; The Atlantic City International Airport; David Schultz Airshows, LLC; the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and many others.
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is this year’s host hotel, while the Atlantic City International Airport (ACY) is the host airport for the Atlantic City Airshow. The majority of Atlantic City Airshow performers take off and land via ACY, although the airshow takes place over the beach and Boardwalk in Atlantic City.
