Million Air meets William Gold


William Gold was announced as winner of custom painted Harley Davidson

William Gold and his Harley DavidsonWilliam Gold, an Avantair charter pilot from Florida
was this year’s winner of Million Air’s Harley Davidson motorcycle drawn at
this year’s NBAA convention in Las
Vegas.  Each
year, Million Air gives away a custom painted Harley Davidson to customers who
enter the annual drawing by flying into any one of the 29 Million Air locations
during a set period of time.

Every year, Million Air chooses a theme for the unique custom
artwork and this year’s theme features an “inked” aviation design with the
giveaway’s tagline of “Live to Fly”. All the artwork is original and was
painted by a locally recognized artist, Verrick Falcon, from Houston, Texas.
“I went for an inked look throughout the bike to give it some attitude,” Falcon
said “Every year I design the artwork knowing it has to appeal to both pilots
and CEOs alike. I kept thinking to myself, no matter who sits on this bike, I
want them to look ‘bad-ass’ because that’s where the two genres of enthusiasts
really meet, sitting on their Million Air motorcycles.”

William Gold was not present at NBAA when his name was called,
however he was surprised when Million Air’s chief executive officer, Roger
Woolsey, called to tell him that he won the bike.  “I only filled out one entry form, only after
the customer service professional encouraged me too, so I thought nothing of
it,” explained Gold. “I have had other motorcycles before, but never a Harley
Davidson and never one with custom paint!”

“There’s a really interesting tie between aviation and Harley
Davidson, it was founded the same year that the Wright brothers took their
first flight,” said Roger Woolsey. “Every pilot should have a Harley Davidson
and every pilot needs to enter in our drawing next year!”
