International helicopter pilot organization, Twirly Birds, will again hold their annual membership meeting in conjunction with the HAI Heli-Expo in Anaheim, California on Tuesday 25 FEB 2014 beginning at 5 p.m. in the Anaheim Marriott Marquis Ballroom Northeast. General membership qualification requirements are to have flown solo in a helicopter or vertical lift aircraft at least twenty years previously. Membership information is also available on the Twirly Birds website at www.twirlybirds.org and attendance at the annual meeting is not required to become a member.
If you meet these requirements or are already a member, Twirly Birds would like to invite you their annual meeting in Anaheim.
Twirly Birds was founded almost seventy years ago when a small group of pilots met to share stories and the common experiences of flying helicopters during these early years of vertical flight. Among notable past members of Twirly Birds include Charles Lindberg, Igor Sikorsky, Stanley Hiller, Alan Bristow and Wes Lematta, to name a few. The intent was then and now, to share the common bond of vertical flight. The group has no political or commercial interest and is by design, a social group comprised of individuals. Membership dues are very modest and the group publishes a newsletter several times a year to keep the membership updated. Catch up with old friends and make new ones by joining Twirly Birds!
