Spreading the word on Bitcoin can be done by anyone, anywhere and in any place. That job becomes a lot easier if you can present something to capture the imagination of everyday people. Would a Bitcoin-themed airplane do the trick? The Bitcoin Jet could become a great source of Bitcoin promotion for many years to come.
The Bitcoin Jet – What, Who and Why?
Most of our readers might be wondering what the purpose of a Bitcoin-themed airplane could be. Other than providing the Bitcoin community with a great way of promoting digital currency, the Bitcoin Jet also tells a story. And that story begins with looking at the team behind the Bitcoin Jet, in the form of Mark Hale and Paul Strickland.
Mark “Fidel” Hale is the official owner of the Bitcoin Jet. Not only is he an accomplished aviator and aircraft designer, but Mark Hale is also a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur. And what better way to complement his passion for Bitcoin and digital currency than by putting a giant Bitcoin decal on the side of the airplane itself?
But such a big undertaking could not be completed by just one person. Mark Hale is joined by Paul “Sticky” Strickland, who is also a Bitcoin evangelist and shares the same passion. Paul Strickland is a retired Colonel and a former Air Force Thunderbird. Ever since retiring, Paul has devoted his attention to becoming a demonstration pilot for the Patriots Jet Team.
The Bitcoin Jet is not just your average demonstration airplane with a different paint job, though. In fact, according to the Bitcoin Jet website, this airplane is a high maneuverable aircraft to fly and built for reliability. And those claims are backed up by a ton of technical details, which you can find out more about by clicking here.
Promoting Bitcoin During Airshows
With a Bitcoin Jet at their disposal, Mark Hale and Paul Strickland are planning to spread the word on Bitcoin to as many people as they possibly can. And one of the things such an aircraft can be used for, is showing off what it can do at airshows. These types of events always draw a medium-to-large crowd, which could be beneficial to Bitcoin awareness and adoption.
Speaking of airshows, the Bitcoin Jet made a few appearances last year. In September of 2014, the Bitcoin Jet could be seen during the Gunfighter Skies event at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho. A few months later, in November of 2014, the Bitcoin Jet demonstrated its potential during the Las Vegas Airshow at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada.
