AMERICAN HEROES Air Show Set to Land at Hansen Dam Recreation Center

Holding out for a Hero ? … your wait will be over when the nation’s premier admission-free aviation experience devoted to helicopters returns to Southern California.

Born in Los Angeles in 1993, the AMERICAN HEROES Air Show has never wavered from it’s mission to educate Southern California about the unique capabilities’ rotary-wing aviation delivers to law enforcement, fire service, public safety, national defense and homeland security. With helicopters on display from local, regional, state and Federal / DOD agencies, this event provides families with a rare opportunity to meet the flight crews of these diversly capable aircraft and learn about careers in law enforcement, emergency preparedness, aviation, military and homeland security while getting a first- hand understanding about why helicopters are often the first tool out of the toolbox in times of natural disasters, search & rescue operations or national security threats.

High-tech helicopters and their crews from around the region will be on static display for families to inspect plus exciting demonstrations of airborne capabilities with hoist rescues, precision water drops and special operations. Plus, have your camera ready and meet many of the Southland’s well-known celebrity / media pilots and news reporters that are often first on-scene for traffic updates and breaking news.

Our friends with the Professional Cars International team arrive with their “Rollin’ to the Rescue” presentation once again with a unique display of vintage police, fire and emergency vehicles as they roll into the event and set up for display throughout the day.
