For the first time at Oshkosh, rotorcraft enthusiasts have a place to call their own. A new, dedicated ?Heli Center? has been created for the international helicopter community by the Helicopter Association International (HAI) and EAA.
?Helicopters are an exciting and innovative part of aviation, and are a passion for thousands of aviators,? said EAA President and CEO Rod Hightower. ?We?re glad to be welcoming more of those helicopter owners and pilots, and their aircraft, to Oshkosh.?
Heli Center is a pavilion on an 80-foot by 200-foot site near the flightline, just north of the HondaJet exhibit. The central location will feature helicopter-related exhibitors highlighting their products and services to attendees, aiming to re-introduce many fixed-wing fans to the helicopter. HAI will set up and operate the Heli Center.
