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

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 helicopters, a make-and-take project, and hands-on activities offered by community partners.
