Birmingham 2017 - 23nd Anniversary! Heli Fly-In

Birmingham 2017 is just a casual event where the emphasis is on having fun and enjoying the camaraderie of other helicopter pilots...


Birmingham 2017 is on the way, and you better be ready!

The time has come again for the 23rd anniversary of the Birmingham Heli Fly-in. The event had sloppy rainy weather the last two years, but this year our fingers are crossed and the show must go on. The dates this one are Thursday March 16th- 19th. It is the perfect event and the perfect location those east of the Mississippi. If you are a beginner or a top pilot, you can expect to have professional pilots on hand to give advice and learn from. The event will be held on Dickey Springs Rd up the street from The Worship Center Christian Church. There will be camping areas but no hookups, and a 25$ landing fee.

There are many hotels available in the local area and if you have any questions on the event you can call "Gasser Mike" Spano for more information.

AMA membership required to fly!
