What is an advertising Blimp?

An Advertising Blimp is cigar-shaped inflatable balloon, like an Airship and handles wind conditions well as it is aerodynamic and always moves to face to wind to prevent drag.

Wind Turbine Demonstrations

Need to indicate the exact height of a proposed Wind Turbine in your local area? We can help! Many "Wind Turbine Action Groups" use our specialist Blimp production services to mark or indicate Turbine rotor height. Simply use an Advertising Balloon or Blimp to mark the height of a proposed Wind Turbine, this will draw the attention of unconcerned locals and bring them on side.
Getting one of our Advertising Balloons or Aerial Blimps to float at the rotor tip height of the proposed Wind Turbine (normally between 125 and 145 metres high) will “bring it home” to local residents just how intrusive the Turbine will be. Promotionpiggy can provide you with the Advertising Balloon and everything you need to indicate the height of a Wind Turbine or any tall proposed structure due for construction (though an Advertising Blimp may be more suitable!).

Using an Aerial Blimp in the sky, as these chosen sites are normally windy at the best of times. Ground level wind speed may not indicate the strength of wind at say 125 meters. This is where 'a Blimp comes into its own'. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approval will be necessary to float an Advertising Balloon at those heights. Promotion Piggy the Aerial Advertising specialists can get you your UK permission approval within approx 21 days of the application. This is normally a FREE service. Once you have received your permission, you can elevate the Blimp or Advertising Balloon to the rotor tip height. Some Wind Turbine action groups mark the Turbine Hub height too. This can be with a separate smaller Advertising Balloon or even a flag attached to the main vessel control line.We have helped many local UK action groups to indicate these heights recently, with a helium filled Blimp or Balloon. We recommend a minimum size of Blimp being 5 meters long, this is not just for the Blimp being visible at a greater distance, but for stability as a 5 meter has much for lift. The whole point of the exercise, is to indicate the exact height of the proposed Wind Turbine. Many action groups fail to get "the message across with the Blimp" due to not using one with enough capacity of balloon gas. A 4 meter long blimp has a balloon gas capacity of approx 4.2 m3 where as a 5 meter blimp capacity is 7.2 m3. The Blimp or Advertising Balloon only floats by the amount of air it displaces with a given helium capacity. On these Wind Turbine sites, wind is always stronger than other areas, consequently the Advertising Balloon or Blimp is forced through a radius against its own ground anchor point and will not give a fair indication of the extreme height required. A Bigger Blimp or Balloon keeps a much greater pull on the control line and therefore keeps much more vertical against the wind in the radius, thus indicating a much more accurate height.

We are always impressed with the huge amount of locals that come to the site on the day of elevating the Blimp. Most are shaken by how affected they will be by the proposed Turbine height once it is indicated for real! Many Wind Turbine action groups seem to struggle to get backing and support from some residents in fringe areas. This is due to many people thinking they will hardly be able to see the Wind Turbine from their home. Then once the height is indicated by a prominent and noticeable Blimp or Balloon, they turn up "aghast" at how intrusive it will actually be to them. It is normally residents from as far as a few miles away, turning up on the day and saying, "we can't allow this Turbine to be erected here!”, "We had no idea we would be able to see it so easily". They suddenly realize because the Blimp has indicated that the wind turbine will be obtrusively apparent in their own garden and would even be seen from their dining room table.

We have elevated many Advertising Balloons and Aerial Blimps for Wind Turbine protest groups now and have the experience and expertise to help you. Our Blimps and Balloons are not as expensive as you may imagine. An Advertising Balloon or Blimp will be the best money an action group will spend, far above any other example of signage.

To verify claims made by owners and franchisees of 7-11 Convenience Stores, the parent company, Southland Corporation, retained Universal Technology Marketing Services Inc. of Allentown, Pennsylvania. UTMS was specifically requested to perform a marketing study on the effectiveness and retentive factors of the computer designed, wind tunnel tested model KB-15 Advertising Blimp.
