Enstrom Helicopter Corporation to showcase rotorcraft at Rotors ‘n Ribs

Rotors 'n Ribs

Enstrom Helicopter Corporation is excited to participate in this year’s Rotors ‘n Ribs celebration in Goshen, Indiana on Friday, July 7. The event is considered one of the country’s premier helicopter fly-ins. Helicopter pilots from all over the nation will fly into Goshen Municipal Airport (KGSH) for the free festival.

Enstrom is proud to serve as an official sponsor, allowing Rotors ‘n Ribs to remain free to both professionals and the public. In addition to providing sponsorship, Enstrom will also showcase its latest helicopter models, fresh off the factory floor.

Enstrom representatives plan to attend Rotors ‘n Ribs to network with guests and answer questions. Among them, are Enstrom President Todd Tetzlaff, Vice President of Sales & Marketing Dennis Martin, and Vice President of Product Support & Quality Assurance Doug Smith.

“We see this as an opportunity to meet with helicopter enthusiasts and show them what Enstrom has to offer,” said Dennis. “We want to tell the world that Enstrom is back! What better place to do that than in front of several thousand people right here in the Midwest?”

The fun for professionals begins at 3PM. Anyone who pre-registers can participate in the fly-in, attend exclusive educational seminars, and enjoy a delicious (and free) rib dinner. Then at 6PM, the public is welcome to join the festivities. The festival’s blockbuster slate of events includes helicopter rides, food trucks, and a drone light show. The night concludes with a bang, when Ramsey Pyrotechnics lights up the sky above Goshen with a spectacular fireworks show.

Sweazy Q will serve all pre-registered industry professionals a free rib dinner. Following this exclusive meal, half a dozen food trucks will open their mobile kitchens to the hungry public.

Later in the evening, Enstrom pilots and dozens of others will take part in a Guinness World Records attempt.

“That’s what I’m most excited about,” said Dennis. “I have a friend who has a Guinness World Record. I want that certificate for my wall. It’s been on my bucket list.”

For overnight accommodations, organizers have reserved a block of rooms for guests at Fairfield Inn & Suites. It is within a short driving distance of Goshen Municipal Airport. Reservations are due June 23.

To pre-register, guests are encouraged to visit the official Rotors ‘n Ribs Contact Us page and fill out the form. Guests should check the appropriate box, confirming whether they plan to fly in or attend by some other means.
