Helicopter Museum Launches Adopt-A-Copter
The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (AHMEC) at West Chester, PA to launch Adopt-A-Copter new program aimed to educate about helicopters and their contributions
AHMEC, September 07, 2017 - West Chester, PA – The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (AHMEC), 1220 American Boulevard, West Chester, has an exciting new way to involve visitors, members, classrooms and more with its diverse helicopter collection.
The program is entitled Adopt-A-Copter.
The fun and informative Adopt-A-Copter, slated to launch in mid-September, aims to educate about helicopters and their contributions while offering people a chance to learn more about certain ships.
Six of the museum’s copters are available for adoption: the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey; Bell AH-1F Cobra; Bell 204/TH IL Huey; Boeing CH-46E Sea Knight; Hughes 269A/TH 55A Osage, aka “Stubby, the Travelling Helicopter;” and Hughes 369 (OH 6/OH 6A) Cayuse, aka “Cheerful Chopper.”
Each individual Adopt-A-Copter costs $50.00 plus $1.00 per adoption for shipping and handling. It comes with an Official Adoption Kit that contains a Certificate of Adoption, glossy photo with details about the adopted helicopter, interesting facts about helicopters and paper helicopter cut-outs for the adopter’s enjoyment.
The adoption is purely symbolic, and signifies only that a donation has been made to AHMEC, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, for the general support of its activities in rotary wing aviation preservation and education. Adoptive “parents” retain no physical rights to the copters, the facility or anything pertaining to the museum.
Applications will be available in AHMEC’s gift shop and on the website at www.americanhelicopter.museum. Please contact Jan Feighner at 610-436-9600, x204, or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center, located in the land of industry innovators in the Philadelphia region, is the nation’s premier aviation museum devoted exclusively to helicopters. Established in 1996, the nonprofit organization collects, restores and displays rotary-wing aircraft, including over 35 civilian and military helicopters, autogiros and convertiplanes.
