Helicopter Launch

  • TitleHelicopter Launch for YAA


The Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity was planning the unveiling of their state of the art new helicopter to a group of over 100 VIP’s, Sponsors and Supporters.

This, required us to design a way of revealing a large helicopter within their purpose built air support unit at Nostell Priory, West Yorkshire, a space not designed for staging events!


The main challenge was to install a system of trussing and drape in exactly the correct areas to section off an area of the hangar large enough to house the helicopter and also have a separate presentation area and lunch reception.


Having divided the space into two we had separate areas for the presentations and the helicopter. The reveal event included:

  • Trussing and drape system.
  • 15m white gauze for projecting video & lighting effects.
  • Presentation area with stage, a ceremonial red reveal button, presentations displayed on the gauze and plasma screens, and a high quality PA system.
  • A kabuki drop to release the gauze and reveal the helicopter.
  • Lighting around and under the helicopter to create the wow factor during the reveal.
  • The whole event was recorded for use in promotional material.
