This event was originally scheduled for Saturday, May 4th but was postponed due to inclement weather and has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 1st.
The 2nd annual "Helicopter Day at the Aviation Wing" will be held on Saturday, June 1st from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM at the Marietta Museum of History’s Aviation Wing located on Atlanta Road at South Cobb Drive.
The annual event showcases helicopters currently in use by law enforcement, emergency medical services and our military in the metropolitan Atlanta area by having these versatile aircraft on display for the public to see and be educated about the various roles these aircraft play in saving lives and protecting our cities, counties, State and Nation. Pilots and crew members will be available to talk about and answer questions about the specific type of helicopter they use, the types of missions they fly and technology they use on board these remarkable aircraft. Aviation Wing volunteers will be on site to provide information and answer questions about the former military and other aircraft on display at the museum site. Free rides around the Aviation Wing museum property will be given in a 1942 Army Jeep. Vehicles used by the Marietta Fire Department, Marietta Wrecker Service and possibly a ground transport ambulance from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and other specialized emergency response vehicles will be on display for the public to see.
Blue Ridge Helicopters will be on site selling helicopter rides out to Kennesaw Mountain in a Robinson R44 Helicopter for $40 per person/seat (cash only). Up to three people can ride in the helicopter at a time depending on weight restrictions (no one over 270 lbs.) and there is no age limit. Cost for children is the same as adults.
