WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Bidding is underway as the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office auctions off its helicopter. The auction opened today on the website

The chopper started at $150,000. So far it has received one bid for $175,000, but it has not yet reached its reserve price.

Sheriff Ed McMahon announced last month his plans to sell the chopper, which has sat idle since the pilot resigned last fall.

The auction runs through April 11.
