American Helo Museum Holds FamilyFest

Experienced Huey-Hauler Malinois to Demonstrate, Be Awarded for Work at Kid-Friendly Event

The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (AHMEC) will be holding its FamilyFest on Saturday, June 24, from 10:00 to 15:00 at its West Chester, Pennsylvania home.

FamilyFest will have an appearance by “The Dog with the Most Flights in a Huey Helicopter,” Torque. The Belgian Malinois will be accompanied by her assistant to present the history of rotary-wing dogs, her record, and the ins and outs of her work. Paul Kahan, AHMEC’s Executive Director, will present Torque with a plaque honoring her accomplishments.

“We’re thrilled to welcome this extraordinary animal to our museum. She flies with the Huey Vets in the San Francisco Bay Area and works with various charitable organizations, including the Tug McGraw Foundation,” explained Kahan. “Additionally, she is a highly regarded crime fighter, so come and meet Torque and hear her incredible story.”

The event will have local food trucks on tap, with Mobile Mess Hall and Shimpy’s BBQ, Kona Ice, and Sinfully Delicious, with drinks from Locust Lane Brewery and Grace Winery. A host of vendors and local responders will also make an appearance to demonstrate some of their skills, too. After the presentations, the Museum will host its annual classic car and motorcycle show.

Helicopter rides will be available for a flat $100.00 per person for non-museum members and $85.00 for museum members. Rides will be first-come, first-served running from 12:30 to 15:00.

“There will be so much here to see and do that you won’t know where to start!” Kahan added. “We truly have something for everyone.”
