Covert Aire™ Express

Coming to Oscar Frazier Park: Spring 2018

The Covert Aire™ Express is designed to ignite the imagination of local children through the power of collaborative play. Kids will be able to climb, ride, discover and “drive” the Covert Aire™ Express to new places in their imaginations.

Covert Aire™ Express project is part of a larger Field of Dreams and playground rejuvenation project in Oscar Frazier Park coordinated by leadership from the Rotary Club of Bluffton and the Town of Bluffton. The larger project includes the addition of a “cool sand” turf feature and playground area expansion. The train will be the iconic signature piece in the park and provide families a safe, interactive and historic place to gather and play.

“I cannot think of a better and more meaningful way to give back to the community, not only for today, but for years to come,” stated Mike Covert. “The Covert Aire™ Express Engine will help provide a fun and safe place for the leaders of tomorrow, our children, to stay physically active and most importantly, just be kids!” 

Covert went on to say, "the Imagination Train is directly sponsored by The Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class of 2018.   The Leadership Class who has historically consisted of the best and brightest young professionals in this area, have outdone themselves with the presentation and commitment to the Imagination Train."

In ten years the company has grown to serve residents and businesses throughout the Low Country, Savannah and other regional areas in the state of South Carolina and Georgia. The company’s core value statement emphasizes caring for others positive attitude, integrity, effort, and being the best of the best in heating and air services and giving back to others as a high priority to success in what they do.
