On Thursday, August 15th, the nonprofit Friends of Army Aviation-Ozark returns to Orange Beach to offer rides in a vintage Vietnam War-era Bell UH-1 Huey combat helicopter from the helipad near Orange Beach Event Center at The Wharf.
The flights will begin at 9 a.m., weather permitting, and last until 5 p.m. Each flight will last approximately 10 minutes and the cost is $50 per person. No advance tickets are required. Just show up and purchase ticket on site. There is room for up to 10 people on each flight. Children must be least 2 years old and big enough to be safely buckled in a seatbelt. Young children cannot ride in a parent's lap.
The public is invited to come out and experience history along with breathtaking views of Orange Beach.
