No matter what sort of business you own, it’s important to find a way to attract customers. There are lots of different marketing techniques that you might want to try. You can always go the traditional method- bill boards, print ads in the news paper, television and radio commercials, and a new coat of paint for your store front. But traditional, while often effective, can also be very boring. If you want to do something a little more interesting, you’ll want to think outside the box. Perhaps you might want to consider something more fun, like using giant balloons to promote your business.
7 ft. giant balloons with lettering from $533.00
Advertising balloons are generally large inflatable versions of familiar cartoon characters or animals. For a small price, you can often rent a balloon like this for a period of time, or buy your own to have set up as permanent structure. These types of balloons add a sense of fun and whimsy to your business that traditional methods leave out. Balloons are a great way to make your business more visible as well. If you happen to live in a crowded neighborhood, directing people to the giant inflatable purple monkey might prove to be a little bit easier that trying to give them your street address. Keep in mind though that while one or two matching balloons of reasonable size can be fun and appropriate, too many and you start to look silly. Minimize your use of advertising balloons to one or two, and only use them if you aren’t trying to maintain a highly sophisticated business air. With the right use of giant balloons, you may see an increase in your business volume, and new customers may come in to see what’s going on, now that you’re company looks more fun and inviting that ever before.
A tethered blimp is not considered a drone by the United States FAA.
Background of FAA Oversight of Model Aircraft OperationsHistorically, the FAA has considered model aircraft to be aircraft that fall within the statutory and regulatory definitions of an aircraft, as they are contrivances or devices that are “invented, used, or designed to navigate, or fly in, the air.” See49 USC 40102 and 14 CFR 1.1. As aircraft, these devices generally are subject to FAA oversight and enforcement. However, consistent with FAA’s enforcement philosophy, FAA’s oversight of model aircraft has been guided by the risk that these operations present. The FAA first recognized in 1981 that “model aircraft can at times pose a hazard to full-scale aircraft in flight and to persons and property on the surface,” and recommended a set of voluntary operating standards for model aircraft operators to follow to mitigate these safety risks.SeeAdvisory Circular 91-57, Model Aircraft Operating Standards (June 9, 1981). These operating standards included restricting operations over populated areas, limiting use of the devices around spectators until after the devices had been flight tested and proven airworthy; restricting operations to 400 feet above the surface; requiring that the devices give right of way to, and avoid flying near manned aircraft, and using observers to assist in operations. These guidelines were further clarified in 2007, when the FAA issued a policy statement regarding unmanned aircraft s ystems (UAS) operations in the NAS. See 72 Fed. Reg. 6689 (Feb. 13, 2007). In this policy statement, the FAA also recognized that UAS fall within the statutory and regulatory definition of “aircraft” as they are devices that are “used or [are] intended to be used for flight in the air with no onboard pilot.” Id.; see also49 U.S.C. 40102; 14 CFR 1.1. The FAA noted that they can be “as simple as a remotely controlled model aircraft used for recreational purposes or as complex as surveillance aircraft flying over hostile areas in warfare.” The FAA then stated its current policy regarding UAS based on the following three categories: (1) UAS used as public aircraft; (2) UAS used as civil aircraft; and (3) UAS used as model aircraft. With respect to UAS used as model aircraft, the FAA reiterated the operating guidelines in AC 91-57, and further noted that to qualify as a model aircraft, the aircraft would need to be operated purely for recreational or hobby purposes, and within the visual line of sight of the operator. The policy statement also clarified that AC 91-57 applied only to modelers and “specifically excludes its use by persons or companies for business purposes.” 72 FR at 6690.
Our polyurethane balloons and blimps weigh, on average, 67% less than comparable size helium balloons made of PVC or nylon. What does that mean for you? Much better performing balloons and blimps using our polyurethane made products. You will use a fraction of the helium to fill and maintain your helium balloons and blimps.
This 5.5ft helium balloon only needs 87 cubic feet of helium and will fly much better than 7.0ft balloons made of PVC. You can save hundreds of dollars in helium costs by switching to polyurethane balloons and blimps Today! Polyurethane balloons and blimps lose, on average, 1% of their helium each day as compared to 3% for PVC balloons and blimps.

You will never go back to PVC or nylon after using polyurethane products.
We started manufacturing polyurethane balloons and blimps over 20 years ago because of the poor performance and large ongoing costs associated with balloons and blimps made of PVC and nylon. We rented balloons and blimps to auto dealers, home builders and other businesses and it was nearly impossible to make a profit because of the ongoing costs. Helium usage was very high and blimps are balloons were always crashing because of the heavy weight. We discovered polyurethane, which costs 6 – 7 times more per pound, and have been using it since.
