International helicopter pilot organization, Twirly Birds, will again hold its annual membership meeting in conjunction with the Helicopter Association International (HAI) Heli-Expo in Louisville, Kentucky, on Tuesday, March 1.
To be a member in the Twirly Birds, you must have flown solo in a helicopter or vertical lift aircraft at least 20 years previously.
Twirly Birds was founded more than 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 Lindbergh, Igor Sikorsky, Stanley Hiller, Alan Bristow and Wes Lematta.
The group has no political or commercial interest and is, by design, a social group comprised of individuals, officials noted.
