    Aerial advertising over an event

    Message I saw on the message board that you are interested in having a banner or billboard flown over an event. I am a banner operator in the Northwest and I would love to have a chance to work with you on this. In your post on the message board you asked a couple of questions and I'll try and answer them for you. The first question is what does it cost to have a banner made and then who is responsible for the banner. If you are planning to use a standard text banner, the banner tow operator generaly supplys the banner, I have a large inventory of letters and you tell me what the ad copy is and I assemble it and fly it over the event. The cost for the banner assembly is generaly included in the price of the tow. In the event that you want the copy changed for different flights there is generaly a charge for changing the banner. The second option you have is an aerial billboard. Billboards range in size from 20x50 to as large as 30x100. The billboard is made out of a lightwieght nylon and can have text or graphics applied to it. The billboard production fee is generaly quoted on a cost per square foot, either hand painted or computer generated. Painted signs are generaly less money. One idea is to have your orginization purchase a billboard, then ship it to different areas of the country where your events are going to take place and have the sign flown by the local operator.
    If you have any questions that I can answer please feel free to contact me, my website is and all my contact info is on there.

    A while back I mentioned that I hired a small plane to carry a banner over the District Assembly at Dodger Stadium back in 1983 and that it encouraged several families to leave the Watchtower, since it had the critical message:

    1980 Bethel Shakeup - (phone number)

    Some showed an interest in getting this to happen over or next to an assembly in their area. This is the guy to talk to, at least in the northwest. Just type in "Ads Aloft" on Google and you will get pages like these:

    Now that would be neat. People are sat there just wanting something to look at.

    I'd put up money for it. Count me in.

    I'd be up for participating in this too. Nice idea. I've been thinking of billboards, but this is better; more targeted and the investment can be reused from city to city.

    Here's a slogan:
