Aerial Banner Company Turns 70

Aerial Banner Company Turns 70

Like saltwater taffy and “Watch the tramcar please,” a single-engine Piper Cub airplane pulling an advertising banner above the shoreline is a Jersey Shore tradition.

Some of the planes have been flying from Cape May Point north, sometimes as far as Sandy Hook, since 1945. Paramount Air Service — the nation’s oldest and largest aerial advertising firm — is based in Cape May County and is celebrating 70 years in the sky.

Barbara Tomalino, owner and operator of Paramount, is the daughter of Andre Tomalino, the founder of the company. “It’s who we are,” Tomalino said of the aerial advertising firm.
