World Helicopter Day aims to raise awareness of the helicopter’s contributions to society and celebrate the diversity of people who design, fly and support them.

Every day, thousands of people rely on helicopters for rescue, disaster relief, transport, firefighting, medical transfers, power line maintenance, tourism, agriculture and many other roles.

Few people get to see helicopters up close or have the opportunity to talk to the people who work with them. Planned events will give local communities the opportunity to inspect several different helicopters, discover more about how helicopters fly and learn about careers in the helicopter industry.

Events are currently organized in the following locations:

  • Australia, Brisbane
  • Australia, Cairns
  • Hong Kong
  • Spain, Balearic Islands
  • U.S., Alabama
  • U.S., Pennsylvania
  • U.S., New York
  • U.S., California
  • U.K., Somerset
  • U.K., Chard
  • U.K., Manchester
  • U.K., Leicestershire

  • Serbia, Belgrade

This is the fifth year that World Helicopter Day has been held and interest is expanding each year and reaches more countries.

More details on individual event locations are available on the World Helicopter Day website: http://worldhelicopterday.com.

Helicopter companies, organisations or charities looking to hold an open day in their city as part of the day’s outreach program can submit their event details through the main website for greater visibility. Participation is nil cost and every event helps to raise the profile of the industry as a great outreach program.
