Twirly Birds Announce Annual Meeting

To Be Held In Dallas, TX In Conjunction With Heli-Expo

The social helicopter pilot organization "Twirly Birds" has announced their annual meeting to be held in Dallas, Texas on Sunday, February 12th during the 2012 HAI Heli-Expo. The reception will begin at 1700 CST immediately followed by a membership meeting at 1800 in Ballroom A, Section 1 in the Dallas Convention Center. Steve Sullivan, Twirly Birds President, along with Vice President Jim Kettles and Treasurer, Dennis MacBain, will conduct the meeting and presentation of the prestigious Les Morris lifetime achievement award. A silent auction of vintage helicopter models will also be held.

Anyone that has soloed in a helicopter at least twenty years ago is cordially invited to join the group for an evening of aviation fellowship, making new friendships, and renewing old ones. Associate membership is also available to outstanding individuals that are not rotary wing pilots, but have made a significant contribution to the helicopter industry for at least twenty years, and has been unanimously approved by the regular Twirly Bird membership. A new lifetime membership category is now available for a one time, tax deductable donation of five hundred dollars to the non-profit Twirly Birds.

Twirly Birds was founded over sixty years ago by a small group of pilots who met to share stories and their common experiences during the early years of helicopter flight. Since the beginning, the aspiration of the group has been to share the common bond of vertical flight. Charles Lindbergh, Igor Sikorsky, Stanley Hiller, Alan Bristow and Wes Lematta, are a few of the notable past members of Twirly Birds that have shared their stories and experiences.

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 members up to date.
