Whirly-Girls Awards Banquet a Success

The Whirly-Girls had a great time at our events at HAI's HELI-EXPO Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. We held our Awards Banquet, annual meeting, educational seminar, and more! Our Awards Banquet took place on February 28 where our scholarship recipients celebrated with families, friends, and sponsors. It was a grand evening! 

Our Give It a Whirl event at Bowman Field had a great showing. Hundreds appeared to explore real helicopters, test their skills in an X-Copter Simulator, participate in educational games and activities, and find out just what being a helicopter pilot is all about! Read more about our events here.
