"It was impressive to look this gigantic Helibanner from a great distance, and when you had it near, it just left you totally amazed. This day was the start of the soccer finals and the Helibanner helped us make our statement as the official sponsor. Everybody at the stadium saw it and there wasn't anyone at the streets at the flight times who did not see our brand in the air! All our contacts were calling us making us know how admired they were, and this day will truly be remembered because Digicel was the first to fly a Banner so Gigantic in El Salvador."
