Okeechobee Ride Event

11/14/2022 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Free – $70.00


Due to the impacts of Tropical Storm Nicole making projected landfall in the vicinity of the Lake Okeechobee area, Friends of Army Aviation in conjunction with the airport authority has decided to move the event from Thursday to Monday.

No ticket? No worries – we will have plenty of spaces available so come on out to the Okeechobee Airport and take a ride.

We specialize in happy smiles so bring your family, neighbors, and friends and take a ride in a Huey helicopter. All minors under the age of 16 must be accompanied on the ride by a parent or legal guardian. Children 16-17 may ride alone with a parent or legal guardian’s written permission.

Helicopter ride group tickets or a sponsorship package may be purchased in advance.  Please contact us at for details.  However, individual tickets may be purchased at the ride event.
