The description on the print states:
Jumping off from Manhattan’s heliports and a private terminal on West 30th St., ZIP Aviation’s Bell 407 “N48ZA” displays what may arguably be the most
striking helicopter exteriors of any commercial helicopter in operation today. N48ZAs primary missions are tourism and charter flights around and through New York City’s spectacular skyline. It also serves as a camera platform for the film and broadcast industry. It’s very first assignment was as a camera platform for the Red Bull air races over the Hudson River in 2010. Because the helicopter’s regular flight path takes it over water, it is equipped with a six bag floatation system on its skids. All of the exterior lighting, including landing, strobe and positioning, use LED technology.
N48ZA’s cockpit was the first to feature the Garmin G-500H dual screen electronic flight display and the Garmin HSVT (Helicopter Synthetic Vision Technology), which alerts the crew of potential ground hazards and offers a clear 3D perspective of ground and water features, airports, and traffic in dark nighttime VFR or low-visibility conditions.
