UH-1H “Huey” Helicopter Rides
Fly back in history with the men and machines that were there! The Sky Soldiers, a Vietnam re-enactment group will provide rides in a vintage UH-1H “Huey”. For a $75 donation, riders are able to strap in the back of the helicopter and fly with a veteran pilot for 8-10 minutes. Weather permitting, the doors of the helicopter are open during the flight.
The UH–1 “Huey” entered U.S. Army service in 1958 with more than 9,440 different aircraft having been procured over thirty five years. The HUEY was the first mass-produced turbine powered helicopter to enter Army service. This version, the UH–1H, was designed as a troop transport and could carry ten soldiers and a crew of three. The HUEY is widely identified with the Vietnam war and remains in Army and National Guard service to date. The HUEY has been a true “work horse” of modern Army Aviation
