Entertaining and immersive exhibits highlight the significant life-saving missions and contributions helicopters have had to history and society with over 20,000 historic artifacts on display, interactive exhibits, video presentations, knowledgeable docents, and more – all geared towards educating and inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers, pilots, and helicopter operators.
