Description & Comments

A 2004 Robinson R22 Beta-II two-seat helicopter plus the option of a virtually new Sky Sign capable of producing moving text and images. This aerial sign creates a spectacular nighttime display that's visible over wide areas from the ground. The R22 Beta-II helicopter is in excellent condition; N7158D, S/N 3721. It was fully overhauled in 2015. All ADs have been complied with. Helicopter will be sold with a fresh Annual. Remainging time SMOH: 11 years or 1513 hours airframe and engine. Has dual controls, doors, avionics (a Garmin 420 GPS/com with maps and Garmin 327 transponder), all logs, documents and manuals. Painted white with a red stripe; tan leather seats. Available separately from sign for $190,995. NIGHT AERIAL DISPLAY SKY SIGN: The Sky Sign display is 8 ft. by 36 ft. and weighs less than 100 lbs. It includes a laptop computer, a lampdriver and all mounting hardware. The display has 252 lamps that are mounted in push and twist sockets surrounded by a special reflector to amplify the light and not distract the pilot. The display is comprised of three 8 ft. X 12 ft. panels of 84 lights each. This design allows easy shipment and storage. The helicopter's standard electrical system will provide ample power to operate the Sky Sign. After initial installation, the display can be mounted in less than 45 minutes and removed in less than 30 minutes. The only change in the helicopter's normal flight characteristics when the sign is mounted is a reduction in forward speed; with the display removed, the helicopter looks and flies like any other R22 Beta-II. The optimal altitude for best visibility of the display from the ground is about 1,000 feet. The Sky Sign system is itself valued at $25,000. Available separately for $14K. COMPUTER & LAMPDRIVER: A Toshiba laptop computer creates the Sky Sign's display with a Windows-based program that was developed with ease of programming and flight operation in mind. A replica of exactly what the sign is displaying appears on the laptop's monitor. The laptop provides a perfect tool to show a prospective client a preview of what their aerial message will look like. Messages and/or logos can be created that flash, blink, sweep left/right or roll up/down. The displayed text or image can be inverted so the sign can be read while flying away. Computers with wireless cards can receive messages for the sign from the ground. The lampdriver controls all lamps via the signal cable from the computer; its dimensions are 9" x 18" x 3" (kept under seat). Price of the Sky Sign: $14,000 (can be purchased with the R22 or independently. Basic info on the R22 Beta 2: N7158D, Serial # 3721. Airframe TT 4960.
