The HAI HELI-CENTER at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh opens today! All of us on the HAI staff are excited to welcome members and anyone else who is interested in helicopters.
There are half a dozen helicopters on display, including Airbus Helicopters’ EC145 with interior by Mercedes Benz, three from Enstrom – one piston, one turbine, and their new design announced at HELI-EXPO 2014 in February aimed at the training market, Precision Helicopter’s French-built Guimbal Cabri G2, and a Scott’s Bell 47 from Sierra Aviation.
Inside the HELI-CENTER, you’ll have a chance to fly the X-copter simulator, speak with a helicopter flight instructor, or say hello to a number of other HAI members who are bringing the rotorcraft world to the largest fixed-wing general aviation gathering in the world!
And later in the week, you’ll have an opportunity to see Chuck Aaron’s Red Bull helicopter, a Cobra gunship from the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation, and Carter Aviation’s groundbreaking PAV-II slowed-rotor compound aircraft in the parking area across from the HELI-CENTER.
If you’re going to be at Oshkosh, be sure to stop by!
