    • Attire may include a “Curtiss #40” jersey with the PGD logo and American flag logo incorporated as patches.

Joy the Jet

    • Joy is a friendly aircraft that loves connecting families, friends and associates from across the country to their destinations in southwest Florida. Joy is an aviation buff who represents commercial airliners as well as jet-setting private charters and corporate jets.
    • Joy should have a big smile under her “nose!”
