World Helicopter Day Set For August 19

Celebrates Contributions Helicopters Have Made To Society

August 19th has been set as the 4th Annual World Helicopter Day, which aims to raise awareness of the contributions that helicopters make to our society and celebrate the diverse range of people that design, fly and support them. The day is held on the 3rd Sunday of August each year.

Throughout the world every day there are people relying on helicopters for rescues, disaster relief, transport, firefighting, medical transfers, powerline maintenance, tourism, agriculture and many more roles.

There are an estimated 56,200 helicopters worldwide and the industry employs more than 500,000 people. Helicopter organisations and companies can support this international day through hosting their own open days. This a chance for members of the public to get up close and look over the helicopters while meeting the people that operate them.

For rotary wing aviators and support staff, World Helicopter Day is an opportunity for the helicopter fraternity to share in their common passion while preserving and promoting relationships, traditions and shared memories.

The World Helicopter Day website will maintain a register of worldwide events that local communities can access to see what is happening in their local area. Individual open day organizers are encouraged to submit their event details and company logos to be included via the main website
