An English Air Service helicopter circling the Santa Maria Public Airport this afternoon is filming a new commercial for the facility, according to General Manager Chris Hastert.
The helicopter, which began flying about 1:30 p.m., is capturing the airport from all angles for the commercial being developed by S. Lombardi & Associates, based in San Luis Obispo.
The aerial photography session is expected to continue until approximately 3 p.m. when an Allegiant Air flight is set to land.
English Air Service is based at the airport.
