DALLAS — International helicopter pilot organization, Twirly Birds, will again hold its annual membership meeting in conjunction with the Helicopter Association International (HAI) Heli-Expo in Anaheim, Calif., on Feb. 25.
The meeting begins at 5 p.m. in the Anaheim Marriott Marquis Ballroom Northeast.
General membership qualification requirements are to have flown solo in a helicopter or vertical lift aircraft at least 20 years previously. Membership information is also available on the Twirly Birds website and attendance at the annual meeting is not required to become a member.
Twirly Birds was founded almost 70 years ago when a small group of pilots met to share stories and the common experiences of flying helicopters during the early years of vertical flight. Notable past members include Charles Lindberg, Igor Sikorsky, Stanley Hiller, Alan Bristow and Wes Lematta, to name a few.
