New ski lift? I heard that's how they did it in our town the last time we put up a lift, but it was the year before we moved here.

I've seen where helecopters are used to set AC units on tall buildings.

And sometimes it's goes all terribly wrong!

But then again sometimes it goes right.

I was involved in placing about 15 units on a theater in Harlingen, TX several years ago in a past life. Smooth as silk and quicker than hell.

About 4 minutes per unit from liftoff to being back to pick up another unit.

Cost about $10,000 bucks for the helicopter. But it was cheaper than using a crane and the associated manpower and manhours.
