About Twirly Birds
Twirly Birds was founded more than sixty years ago when a small group of pilots met to share stories and the common experiences of flying helicopters during the early years of vertical flight. Some notable past members of Twirly Birds include Charles Lindbergh, Igor Sikorsky, Stanley Hiller, Alan Bristow and Wes Lematta, to name a few. The intent was then and now, to share the common bond of vertical flight.
The group has no political or commercial interest and is, by design, a social group comprised of individuals. Membership dues are very modest and the group publishes a newsletter several times a year to keep the membership updated. Catch up with old friends and make new ones by joining Twirly Birds!
