Info: https://friendsofarmyaviation.org/foaa-event/bowling-green-ride-event-2/

In addition to the Hangar Party on August 28, come and join Friends of Army Aviation at the airport August 27-29!

FOAA will be offering rides in the UH-1H Huey helicopter. It is an experience like no other. We specialize in happy faces and big smiles so you won’t be disappointed.

All minors under the age of 16 must accompanied on the ride by a parent or guardian. Children 16-17 may ride alone with a parent or guardian written permission.

Online Tickets — Tickets are good for 1 ride on 1 day of this multiday event either August 27, 28, or 29.  Plan on being at the event by 2 pm – in case we have more people than we can fly during daylight.  Although flying in a Huey at sunset would be awesome, we must complete all lifts by sunset so be sure to get there early.  By purchasing a ticket online, we will save you a seat but we encourage you to show up by 2 pm so your wait will be less.

Check flight times – Once you have your wristband and know your flight color, you can now check to see what time your flight will be taking off. If you decide to leave the site, we recommend you return no later than 1 hour prior to your flight time so you can get your Safety Briefing.

This event is solely the responsibility of Friends of Army Aviation, and is not associated with Aviation Heritage Park.
