As a professional not really...
I do have an outdoor a 9 meter blimp, but I do not spend to much time trying and making efforts to sell outdoor services...they come on their own...

There are some people 3 operatos in Brasil...
But they do not have the right contacts as far as marketing is concerned...
And they are very young... and I do not think they are commited to the profession as yet...

I watched a show about Brazil, it is a very vibrant exciting country.
There seems to be a lot of advertising opportunity.

Yes... but keep one thing in mind...
Gas helium in Brazil is about 3 to 4 times the price of USA...
Some States in the north of the country is even more expensive...

This is why Im reluctant in investing in a new Outdoor Blimp...
But it is true... there is a market...

I pay $46.00 US/bottle 291cuft.
What is the cost in Brazil?
Remember I transport my blimp fully inflated so I only use about 1/4 bottle /flight.

AirProducts, AgA, AirLiquide, White Martins...

They say helium has to be shipped in the liquid state because of the volume...
And it has to be in a very special ship in a very special climatized container, and when it arrives the reverse process has to be made... so that is one reason why, plus man working hours, taxes etc etc...

This one is an addition to my fleet.
I do manufacture but I will not sell to anyone in the US I sell outside the US.
Are you looking for a whole airship or just the gondola?
