HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — The Boeing Co. is sticking around as presenting sponsor of the RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island through 2021.

The airline manufacturer and PGA Tour announced the extension on Thursday.

Boeing has been presenting sponsor since 2011. Earlier this year, the Heritage Classic Foundation announced that RBC signed to back the event through 2023.

Boeing has made headlines at Harbour Town Golf Links with several airline flyovers of the course during tournament week. Boeing has a manufacturing plant in North Charleston, about two hours north of Harbour Town Golf Links.

The RBC Heritage will take place from April 13-16, 2017.
