Heroes Air Show 2013

The 2013 American Heroes Air Show Lands at Hansen Dam in Southern Californiaís San Fernando Valley June 29.

This is the only air show devoted exclusively to helicopters lands in the San Fernando Valley.

Since 1993, this admission-free event has been educating the Southern California community as to the unique capabilities and dynamic role of helicopters in law enforcement, fire service, public safety, national defense and homeland security.

With aircraft from local, regional, state and federal/DOD agencies, guests are treated to an up-close look at why these aircraft and their crews are on the front line of public safety and community service.

The event also offers a unique glimpse into the design history of rotary-wing aviation with the many aircraft on static display. Explore the evolution of helicopters from the classic Bell-47 helicopter and the elegant lines and Hi-Tech muscle of the “Firehawk” helicopter from the L.A. County Fire Department.

Helicopters will be on static display for your crew to inspect plus demonstrations of airborne capabilities with hoist rescues, precision water drops and helicopter rides available for a modest fee.

The air show runs 9 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, visit www.Heroes-Airhow.com.
