The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (AHMEC), will celebrate the wonderful world of rotorcraft aviation during its annual World Helicopter Day on Sunday, August 20, from noon until 5 p.m.

Highlighting the day will be helicopter rides for an extra fee. They will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis from 12:30 until 3:30 p.m.

“This is the last helicopter ride day of the year,” explained AHMEC’s Executive Director Paul Kahan. “We wanted kids returning to school to have a final chance at taking to the skies in a rotary wing aircraft. It’s a great adventure for people of all ages!”

Additionally, the Chester County Radio Control Club will demonstrate some of their radio-controlled model aircraft. The group, founded in 1971 as a chartered chapter of the Academy of Model Aeronautics, District 3, will fly their home-built models, including airplanes, helicopters, drones, and gliders in a field adjacent the museum.

Museum admission costs $15.00 for adults, $14.00 for seniors, students, and children ages 2 to 12, $13.00 for Veterans, and free for children under age 2.
