Are you ready for a LEGENDARY EXPERIENCE?

The Huey is best known for its iconic acoustically, rhythmic, thumping sound. While serving in Vietnam, to some it was the sound of hope and to other it was the sound of thunder.

Our Huey was manufactured in 1966 and flew two tours of duty in Vietnam. She has since been painstakingly restored to her original livery and kept in immaculate condition and is maintained by a dedicated crew of engineers. Capable and ready to provide an adrenaline packed LEGENDARY EXPERIENCE to those who dare seek thrill and adventure.

#FLYTHEHUEY is the only privately owned Huey helicopter in the world licensed to offer an adventure helicopter flight to civilian clients. Book your private seats on board this LEGENDARY American war machine today!
