Helicopter Day

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

An indoor and outdoor event held in celebration of aviation careers and the history of helicopters.

Spectators will be able to watch in wonder as, the Nebraska National Guard, law enforcement, commercial and private helicopters fly over the horizon and land right in front them. The helicopters begin their descent at 10 AM. Register onsite for a helicopter ride, tour the helicopters after they land or head inside for a drone workshop, free balloon sculptures, a make-and-take project, and hands-on activities offered by community partners.

Helicopter rides are $60 per person per ride (plus tax). Each person needs to be able to sit up and be restrained by seat belts in their own seat. No age restrictions for kids. Portion of the ride proceeds go to support the Museum. First come first serve registration on site. Rides are about 8-10 minutes near the Museum.

Due to a possibility of high winds throughout the day on May 18, 2019, SAC Aerospace Museum made the decision to not offer helicopter rides during our annual Helicopter Day event. Safety of our guests is our number one priority!

The remainder of the event, both outdoor display helicopters and the indoor activities are still on for May 18, 2019 10-2 pm. We hope to see you all at the event! With questions and comments please contact the Museum’s Marketing Manager via email at marketing@sacmuseum.org

WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING HELICOPTERS FOR DISPLAY ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT. Please email events@sacmuseum.org if you are interested and we will try to coordinate a spot for you.

Outdoor event will be held weather permitting. Indoor activities will happen regardless of the weather. Watch our website and social media for updates.
