Helicopter Day at Georgia Museum Set for Saturday

May 30, 2013 No Comments by

The 2nd annual Helicopter Day at the Aviation Wing will be held this Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Aviation Wing of the Marietta (Ga.) Museum of History. The event will showcase helicopters used by law enforcement, emergency medical services and our military in the metro Atlanta area.

A variety of rotorcraft will be on display for the public to view. Pilots and crew members will be on hand to talk about the specific vehicles, how they are used and the types of missions they fly. The Fox 5 Storm Chaser SUV is scheduled to be on display.

Blue Ridge Helicopters will be on site selling helicopter rides to Kennesaw Mountain for $40 per person (cash only, please).

Admission to the event is free, but there is a parking fee of $5 per vehicle.

The Aviation Wing of the Marietta Museum of History is a growing collection of aircrafts displayed on a 15 acre campus, conveniently located 4.5 miles west of I-75. This museum’s mission is to highlight the impact the aviation industry has had on local culture.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
