Guinness World Record Attempt

We will attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the most helicopters hovering over a single field. We’re still finalizing our plans, but we guarantee you won’t want to miss this attempt. Sign up for our email newsletter to be the first to learn how you can join in once we announce more details.

Helicopter Demos

The Army Aviation Heritage Foundation will participate in this year’s Rotors ‘N Ribs Helicopter Fly-In. The foundation will provide limited helicopter rides on board a UH-1 Huey or an AH-1 Cobra.

AAHF’s goal is to tell the U.S. Army Aviation story through participation in museum tours, school programs, air shows, and other public events like Rotors ‘n Ribs. The organization acquires, restores, and maintains vintage flying aircraft, particularly aircraft used during Vietnam and the Cold War. By doing so, AAHF hopes to honor the men and women who served in the U.S. Military and Army Aviation. AAHF pilots, or “Sky Soldiers” as they call themselves, serve alongside volunteers in conducting patriotic flying presentations, public helicopter rides, and more.

Guests who’ve taken a helicopter ride with AAHF have lauded their experience, often finding catharsis in keeping the memory friends lost in battle alive. Other guests say they’re thankful for the professionalism and patriotism of AAHF pilots.

Drone Light Show

We invite you to witness a spectacular display of illuminated, synchronized drones choreographed to create amazing aerial formations by Sky Elements Drone Shows. Programmers can transform graphics into flight commands to create almost any image in the sky. The show will begin after sunset at 10PM.

Fireworks Display

To cap off day one, Ramsey Pyrotechnics will put on a breathtaking fireworks display, coloring the night sky above Goshen Municipal airport.
