Description
Aviation Weathervanes: This Helicopter Weathervane is made of 14 gauge steel. The Helicopter Weathervane is laser cut eliminating any unsightly welding producing a more attractive weathervane. Unlike some other brands that just show a silhouette, the Helicopter Weathervane has laser cuts in strategic places adding dimension, style and detail to the weathervane.

The photograph does not do justice to the beautiful, warm, brown finish. Each weathervane goes through 3-step coating process.
  1. Zinc chromate plating is applied to the base metal for better adhesion, durability and rust prevention.
  2. An attractive antique copper vein powder coat is baked on the surface.
  3. A clear powder coat is then applied to protect against UV rays to help prevent fading and providing a durable and scratch resistant product.

The weathervane arrives with the airplane figure, sealed ball bearing windcups allowing the windcups to spin with the lightest breeze, directionals (about 2 ¾" high), and your choice of mount. The Helicopter figure measures about 20 ½" long by 6 ½" high. This weathervane has a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty on the finish and a lifetime warranty on all workmanship. Select the mounting choice from the drop down menu.

  • Pole: about a 60" pole that slides into the ground.
  • Roof: for peaked roof tops with about a 12" rod.
  • Deck: mounts horizontally with a 4"x4" base and about a 12“ rod.
  • Post: mounts vertically with a 4"x4" base and about a 12" rod.

Very nice, built well, attractive. Would have given this 5 stars, but wished the rod would have been 3 inches longer

We just had it put on a very tall pole. Looks great and the quality seems to be very nice.

It is hard to find quality helicopter gifts but his is one. The bronze color looks much better than the photograph. It is the way it should be. Thanks
ProsThere is nothing to be said negative.

I have purchased two of these for my husband! One for primary residence and one for lake house! Helicopter gifts are hard to find.
