Helicopter coloring books for kids of all ages

MHM Publishing Press Release | April 2, 2020

Estimated reading time 4 minutes, 27 seconds.

With millions of kids stuck at home during the COVID-19 crisis — and thousands of pilots and mechanics stuck at home, too — their parents and significant others are desperately seeking activities to keep them busy. At Vertical, we’re doing our small part to help by releasing coloring sheets based on our Global Commercial Helicopter Fleet Poster.

This Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk is one of the Vertical fleet poster models now available to color at home. Eric Lian/Lian Media Illustration

Seven original illustrations by Eric Lian of Lian Media have been stripped of color and are ready to receive your own creative paint schemes. Download them in a printable PDF here, then share the results with us on our social media channels including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

UPDATE (April 11): Download nine more original illustrations from Lian Media here.
