World Helicopter Day is on again for 2018 on Sunday 19 August.

Events so far in Australia in Brisbane, Newcastle and Perth.

Looking for more event locations to add to the global event list at http://worldhelicopterday.com and its social media sites. Ideally the day suits itself to an open hangar style event for the public but is very flexible.

Example of media coverage and PR value from last year: http://www.rotorandwing.com/2017/08/17/ ... hong-kong/

If you want to get involved there is more info on the website and you can submit event details there.
