Greteman Group looks forward to celebrating the holidays with an always-creative outreach to its clients and the community. This year, the agency’s spreading joy with AirFlair, an online, paint-a-plane game and competition.

As is the agency’s tradition, Greteman Group will also make a contribution to a worthy nonprofit. Over the years it has supported everything from foodbanks and literacy programs to Habitat for Humanity and the Boys & Girls Club. Inspired by Dreams Soar Founder Shaesta Waiz, the youngest woman to circumnavigate the globe solo in a single-engine aircraft, after her presentation to the Wichita Aero Club in September, Greteman Group selected WSU Tech’s STEM aviation initiatives for the 2018 holiday gift.

“Integrating science, technology, engineering and math into real-world applications helps us all fly higher,” says Sonia Greteman, agency president and creative director. “Developing AirFlair has been as fun for us as we hope it will be for everyone who plays along. Can’t wait to see the entries and to do our part for STEM.”

“WSU Tech is Wichita’s key aviation workforce education and training institute,” says Gayle Goetz, director for Community Advancement at the National Center for Aviation Training. “Awareness for our STEM initiatives through Greteman Group’s AirFlair competition lets us reach out in a fun way during the holiday. Plus, our staff and students love it.”

What’s the Game?

Participants can design their own plane with this free online tool. Choose from a menu of four components – a fuselage, wings, engine and tail – plus a background. Pick from a multitude of colors, patterns and textures –which can create almost a quarter-million possible combinations (248,832 to be exact). Deck out a plane then share the livery on social media.

A random drawing will determine who snags the prize – a three-dimensional aircraft model, customized with the winning paint scheme. The drawing will be held on December 18 and the winner’s painted aircraft model will ship by the end of January 2019.
