Helicopter Rides

 

JHeadcobratakeoffAH-1F Cobra Attack
Helicopter Ride

The Cobra was developed out of requirement of the Army to have a specialized aircraft for specialized fire suppression and armed escort during the Vietnam War. They were armed with a variety of weapons systems depending on the mission. After the Vietnam War, Cobras were improved and modified to carry anti-tank missiles. The AH-1 also served in the Gulf War as a potent attack helicopter.

The Sky Soldiers Precision Flight Demonstration Team is a dedicated group of veteran pilots performing at various events around the country in support of our country’s military and veterans. The mission of the Sky Soldiers is to demonstrate the Professionalism, Values, Training and Team work found in our military.

The Sky Soldiers demonstrate the physical, mental and emotional strength of all that have served our country. The center piece is a unique military helicopter demonstration team operated and flown by veterans utilizing that Army’s legacy AH-1F Cobra Attack helicopter.

The team’s performing Cobras, painted in our signature Black and Gold, perform an awe-inspriring routine that demonstrates the dynamic maneuverability and capability of the attack helicopter and the skills of the military aviator. This aerial program is a high energy, 20 minute “up close and personal” professionally narrated performance of legacy Army attack helicopters performing intricate, precision, tactical and parade maneuvers that excite and stimulate the imagination.
