Fun Ways to Fly for National Aviation Day

National Aviation Day is the biggest celebration of flight each year. Ever since the presidential proclamation from Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939, the date of August 19 has been observed in the celebration of the history and development of aviation. It also happens to be the birthday of Orville Wright who, along with his brother Wilbur, were pioneers in the development of powered flight.

As aviation enthusiasts, Maverick invites you to join us in celebration of National Aviation Day. Repost this blog with the hashtags #FlyMaverick and #NationalAviationDay with your favorite aviation photo to spread the word.


Our aircraft includes the largest fleet of ECO-Star helicopters in the world. They feature a 23% larger cabin than most other tourism helicopters and wraparound windows throughout the interior provide superior external visibility allowing guests to soak in breathtaking views. The Fenestron Tail Rotor is unique to the ECO-Star helicopter. It not only drastically reduces outside noise to enhance guest enjoyment but it also limits the effects on nature’s habitats. Maverick’s state-of-the-art ECO-Star helicopters are the “limousines in the sky” providing a quiet, roomy and comfortable flight.

Our sister company, Maverick Airlines, offers tours aboard the Beechcraft 1900D and Cessna Grand Caravan 208B both of which depart from the Henderson Executive Airport, just a short distance from the famed Las Vegas Strip. Find out more about our airplanes on the Maverick Airlines site.
