It seats 12. It costs $5200 an hour to operate. It can be yours if the price is right.

Governor Pat McCrory tweeted Friday that he plans to sell the state's helicopter.

The NC Department of Transportation figures show that the copter was in use for 14.3 hours in 2013. In previous years, the helicopter was used about 60 hours a year.
