it grew into many shows all over the US, Jim credits the Armed Forces. “With zero effort on our part, the military pilots would attend and then rotate out to other states and talk up the event.” This grew into what the American Heroes Airshow is today. The website lists 10 locations of events with shows all over the U.S. Jim tells me he had a couple folks come out from Texas for the event, but while I was working one of the booths I met a couple from Georgia and an LE pilot visiting from Honolulu, Hawaii. This event is truly a draw for helicopter enthusiasts. Speaking of which, Jim himself is quite the


enthusiast, but surprisingly he’s not a


helicopter pilot. “Every time I had the money to learn to fly I didn’t have the time, and when I had the time, I wasn’t making enough money!” I can tell Jim has been asked this question a few times before, and it seems rather familiar thinking back on my own training. So what’s up next? “Mike Grier is hosting the next event in Georgia on


Sept 11th. Texas, Florida, Maryland, then Washington state, and we’ll have our first in Arizona in late September”. To check out when the show may be com- ing near you, just go to their website at www.heroes-airshow.com.
