Helicopter Day 2019

The Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum Announces Helicopter Day Saturday, May 18, 2019

ASHLAND, NE (April 4, 2019)  – Helicopter Day is an indoor and outdoor event held at the Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum in celebration of aviation careers and the history of helicopters. 

Spectators will be able to watch in wonder as, helicopters from military, law enforcement, and commercial pilots fly over the horizon and land right in front them. The helicopters begin descending at 10 a.m. After all helicopters land, spectators can visit with helicopter pilots about their careers and get a firsthand view of each aircraft.  Helicopter rides will be available through Johnson Helicopter Services on a first-come-first-serve basis. Activities will take place inside the museum from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., including a drone workshop on flight and safety, free movies in the Museum’s theater, free balloon sculptors, and a make-and-take project.

Full release attached. Also, right next door to the SAC Aerospace Museum is Mahoney State Park – they have free park entry/fishing on May 18. http://calendar.outdoornebraska.gov/event/free-park-entry-fishing-day?instance_id=7769
