Signs unique sponsorship with STRAC aviation and CHIMPP corporation.

The Las Vegas Hilton, a classic property that has transformed itself into a contemporary resort that ranks among the world's most famous and popular destinations, today announced a new sponsorship relationship with STRAC Aviation, LLC and CHIMPP Promotional Experts.

Through this unique, innovative, and creative sponsorship alliance, the Las Vegas Hilton becomes a business sponsor of STRAC's L-39 "MiG" jet-fighter aircraft operations. The resort's best casino customers will have the opportunity to personally experience the thrill and excitement of flying in a genuine Soviet-era high-performance military jet aircraft. Under the personal guidance of retired airline Captain Bob "Snake" Cox (STRAC Aviation), selected participants will experience ground-school safety training, learn about aircraft procedures and capabilities, and be tutored in aircraft control and communications. The highlight of the program is the personal flight experience in a real Soviet jet.

"This is not a ride simulation," says Captain Cox, "this is a genuine Soviet-era high-performance military aircraft, with a top speed of 600 miles per hour. Its power and maneuverability are unmatched in a jet of this type. But, we take it easy on participants and only do maneuvers that they are comfortable with and discussed beforehand. Safety and comfort are our top priority."

"In a 'been there, done that' era, this is truly an innovative and unique program," says CHIMPP Promotional Experts' Jim Personius. "As an industry leader, the Las Vegas Hilton was looking for something that no one has done before and we have put together a fantastic program for our sponsor and their VIP clients. This program gives new meaning to the term 'corporate skybox.' "

"We think our customers will be thrilled with the opportunity to experience the excitement and adrenaline rush that our new 'MiG' Fighter Pilot Experience offers," says Tony Alves, Las Vegas Hilton's Director of Casino Marketing. "Few civilians have an opportunity to fly in a former military jet aircraft and we are pleased to offer this gift to our VIP customers at the Las Vegas Hilton."
