What is a sky banner?

A sky banner is a large format aerial billboard typically pulled, or towed, behind a fixed-wing banner towing plane. Sky banners can be flown by small, medium, and large brands and individuals looking to raise awareness in a certain region or area. These eye-popping airplane messages create the most impact over large crowds. Commonly, advertisers choose to fly sky banners over beaches, sporting events, state fairs, music festivals, and other areas where people choose to gather outdoors. Other forms of aerial advertising include sky writing/ sky typing and blimps.

How ABC Scandal's Aerial Banner Ignited A Twitter Frenzy

Posted by Van Wagner Aerial Media   Sep 5, 2014 11:30:00 AM

After a 5 month hiatus, the red hot political thriller Scandal is returning to ABC this September in its regular Thursday 9/8c time slot. The approximate 9 million people that tune in each week for the show aren’t shy about taking to Twitter to express their views on the latest cliff hanger. In 2013, Scandal was ABC’s most socially active show, generating over 4 million tweets in season 2, outperforming social giant American Idol.

With the release of a Scandal season 4 teaser promo video fresh in the minds of fans, ABC decided to stir the pot a little bit more over Labor Day weekend. With the help of Van Wagner Aerial Media, ABC flew a large aerial banner with simple, yet striking copy over some of the most active beaches in New York, New Jersey, and Los Angeles. The banner, noticeably lacking any type of ABC or Scandal branding, simply asked “Where on earth is Olivia Pope?” and included the popular hashtag #TGIT to get the fans talking.

3 Ways To Market To Parents With Young Children

Posted by Van Wagner Aerial Media   Jun 17, 2014 11:30:00 AM

Parents of young children have a lot of demands on their attention.

They’re planning meals, coordinating activities and seeing to it that their kids are safe. With so much going on, it’s often difficult for advertisers to market to parents with young children. The trick is to pick the most opportune times and locations to reach them, and then seize the opportunity when it presents itself.

Aerial advertising is a tremendous asset on this front, as it allows businesses to be in the right place at the right time with the right message. Here are three keys to marketing to parents with young children.



1) Location, location, location: Parents are always looking out for events and destinations that are child-friendly. As a business, you should maximize your efforts to reach families with young children by targeting these events with campaigns using aerial banners and advertising blimps for maximum impact. Beaches (and big lakes like Lake Michigan) during the summertime are a great opportunity to reach this demographic in large numbers.
