International helicopter pilot organization, Twirly Birds, will again hold their annual membership meeting in conjunction with the Helicopter Association International (HAI) Heli-Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 27, 2018, beginning at 1700 hours in the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, Pavilion 1 room adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center. General membership qualification requirements are to have flown solo in a helicopter or vertical lift aircraft at least twenty years previously. Membership information is available on the Twirly Birds website at www.twirlybirds.org
and attendance at the annual meeting is not required to become a member.
If you meet these requirements or are already a member, Twirly Birds would like to invite you to their annual meeting in Las Vegas.
Twirly Birds was founded over seventy years ago when a small group of pilots met to share stories and the common experiences of flying helicopters during these early years of vertical flight. 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 is 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!
