One of our favorite local airshow events – a unique helicopter airshow – is hosted by the Hiller Aviation Museum every year at San Carlos Airport.
The photo on the left is the Eurocopter Messerschmitt Bölkow Blohm Bo-105 CBS fully aerobatic helicopter flown by Chuck Aaron of the Red Bull team. Aaron is the first and only civilian pilot to be licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration to perform aerobatics in a helicopter.
This year’s Vertical Challenge 2009 is being held on Saturday, June 20th. Details are available at the Hiller Aviation Museum web site. Hope to see you there!
