Helicopter Museum opens in Pigeon Forge

The Halson Helicopter Museum joins the Tennessee Museum of Aviation as another stop for aircraft fans vacationing near the Smokies.

According to a story in the Mountain Press, the museum “is not quite ready for the public,” so admission prices are at a discount until all the exhibits are in place. The Museum web site, http://www.helimuseum.com/, appears to be under construction as well.

Scenic Helicopters, which offers tours of the Great Smokies National Park, is one of several helicopter concessions offering to take tourists aloft. While I’m sure that the flights are fun, I can remember when there were so many of them that the Parkway seemed like a scene from Apocalypse Now.
