May 18 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Friends of Army Aviation will be participating in the Shelby County Fly-in Event on May 18th, 2024 in Calera, AL.  FOAA will be offering rides to the participants.  Take a ride in a historic UH-1H helicopter—an experience you won’t forget! Come out and experience Army Aviation heritage and hear the unmistakable Sound of Freedom.  And as always…

We fly with the doors open.  Come and experience the SOUND OF FREEDOM!

No ticket? No worries – we will have plenty of spaces available so come on out to Reynolds Airpark 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.
