During “Whirlybird Weekend,” various types of helicopters will be on display throughout the weekend, invitations extended to everything from small, privately owned recreational rotorcraft to military, corporate, medical and media helicopters. Flight demonstrations by various aircraft, including vintage models such as EAA’s owned Bell 47 helicopter, will be featured throughout each day (weather permitting).
There will also be various ground-based displays and experiences, especially for young people, including “make-and-take” activities that help introduce and explore the world of flight.
