Boy Scouts of America visit Independent Helicopters!

 

FAA ACE Academy!

Every year we have the opportunity to work with the Boy Scouts of America and to introduce these young gentlemen into the wonderful world of Aviation

They all look forward to a fun, interactive aviation summer camp!  It’s geared towards middle-high school students who are interested in aviation and aerospace. Each camp is unique and no two are identical.

Thank you to Camp Keowa for this opportunity!

If You Missed The Disabled American Veterans Concert at Stewart…

We just may have a few pictures, and a lot of them are from the car show! We had a visit from the airport general manager, Ed Harrison. Ed stopped in to show his support on his day off. The Armonia Band played while hiding under tents from the scorching sun. Sadly, they wouldn’t let us enter a helicopter in the car show, but we decided to post a bunch of pictures anyway. Nothing like good old American Muscle. If you didn’t make it, you missed out on a lot of fun! Come to the next one!
