Helicopter Day Lands in Ashland on May 26
Helicopter Day will take place this year on May 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum (www.sacmuseum.org) – 28210 West Park Hwy, Ashland, NE (exit 426 off I-80 between Omaha and Lincoln).
Helicopter Day is an indoor and outdoor event held in celebration of aviation careers and the history of helicopters. Spectators will be able to watch in wonder as helicopters from the Nebraska National Guard, law enforcement, commercial and privately-owned helicopters fly over the horizon and land right in front them. The helicopters begin their descent at 10 a.m. After all helicopters land, spectators can visit with helicopter pilots, including medical and law officials, about their careers and get a firsthand view of each aircraft. Helicopter rides will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and cost $60 per person. Activities taking place inside the museum will include a drone workshop on flight and safety, free helicopter balloon sculptures, a make-and-take project, and hands-on activities.
