A super-fun, all-helicopter air show for the whole family

Description

The Experience

The annual Rotorfest at the American Helicopter Museum in Chester County is an awesome outing for the entire crew to enjoy. There are several helicopters on display, where you can meet filght crews, ride simulators and tour craft interiors. You will also enjoy additional amusement rides, food and other festival entertainment in addition to multiple, jaw-dropping air shows each day.

Along with a fine array of military and civilian helicopters, this year’s Rotorfest will feature the U. S. Army Special Operations Command Parachute Demonstration Team, otherwise known as the Black Daggers. These jumpers free fall at approximately 120-MPH, using their hands, arms, legs and bodies to control descent as they perform various acrobatic maneuvers.

The military helicopters and civilian helicopters will be on static display so that you can look inside them and meet the crews. There will be three exciting air shows a day featuring dramatic and exciting flight demonstrations by military and civilian choppers.

Visitors can climb into the museum’s eight hands-on helicopters and try their hands at the controls. The youngest visitors will have a ball in the museum’s Toddler Learning Area.

The Museum’s other exhibits, including the famous V-22 Osprey, (the only one on exhibit in the world) will also be open for Rotorfest visitors.

Come Prepared

Gates open 10 a.m. The fest ends at 4:30 p.m. each day. Food concessions are available, but call ahead to see what kind of food and beverages you can bring along.

Outsider’s Tip

Don’t miss checking out the Coast Guard Eurocopter HH-65 Dauphin, an example of the type of helicopter that the U.S. Coast Guard used to rescue stranded victims of Hurricane Katrina along the Gulf Coast.
