The description on the print states:

N307Y, displayed in the Beeline livery, was a Sikorsky S-61N operated by SFO Helicopter Airlines in the northern California bay area.

Founded in 1961, SFO Helicopter Airlines (San Francisco and Oakland Helicopter Airlines) offered scheduled passenger flights between San Francisco, Oakland, and other Bay Area cities. Passenger flights started with two leased 10-passenger Sikorsky S-62 turbine helicopters. By 1965 the fleet was made up of one Sikorsky S-62 helicopter and three Sikorsky S-61N helicopters. In May 1968, after continuous growth, the company's schedule reached fourteen weekday departures from the Ferry Building in downtown San Francisco, eleven from Marin, thirteen from Berkeley, three from the ALCO parking complex in Oakland, and nine from Lafayette.

For interline passengers connecting at San Francisco International Airport and then heading east beyond Colorado, the ticket to SFO cost $4.75 from Marin or Lafayette and only $4.50 from Berkeley.
