Fourth Annual Helicopter Day Commences In New England

New England Air Museum Hosts The Event September 11th

The New England Air Museum will hold the 4th Annual Helicopter day on Saturday, September 11th 2021.

The event will showcase many of its helicopters and a few newly restored aircraft. Highlights include a 22,000-pound CH-54 Skycrane, among others. Over 20 helicopters will be displayed with several open to the public to sit in and experience.

In addition to the aircraft available to view, Nick Lappos, Lockheed Martin Senior Fellow, will be presenting with the opportunity to meet and greet. Lappos joined the US Army in 1968. As a Vietnam veteran pilot on the Bell AH-1 Cobra, he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with over 900 combat missions.

Lappos was also a previous Director of Test Engineering for Sikorsky Test Pilot, who holds three helicopter world speed records. Currently, he is a member of the National Academy of Engineering’s Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board and is a former member of the NASA Aeronautics Research and Technology Roundtable.

The event takes place from 10AM-3PM, and it is recommended to wear sneakers or rubber-soled shoes. Veterans and military service men and women with military ID are granted free entrance. Admission is $16 for ages 15 and up with all activities for Helicopter Day included in that price. There is a $2 discount for seniors and the cost is $10 for ages 4-14. Members and children under 3 are admitted free. 

The New England Air Museum is located at the North end of the Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, CT.
