Once again, SkyLink Express was a proud partner with UPS in this wonderful fundraiser by providing one of our YVR-based C208B Grand Caravans for the kid’s plane pull event. Watching the children have so much fun while pulling the SkyLink Express Caravan was a definite highlight for our team of volunteers.

Of course, the jet pull was a great deal of fun for all the adult teams too!

At last count, the event raised over $36,000 for the United Way of the Lower Mainland, more than doubling last year’s donations!

The team of UPS Vancouver volunteers were amazing with all the extra effort that went into this fantastic annual event.

SkyLink Express is extremely proud of our own Vancouver team’s efforts preparing our aircraft and participating in this wonderful day of fun for everyone!  We simply cannot wait to do it all over again in 2016!
