American Heroes Air Show Lands in Austin

Buckle up for excitement when the American Heroes Air Show - the nation’s premier helicopter-only, admission-free aviation event – teams up with the annual Texas Military Forces Open House on the grounds of historic Camp Mabry in the heart of Austin. Since 1993 this unique aviation event has been introducing families across the nation to the Heroes they can really look up to with static displays and flight demos of helicopters that educate the public about the dynamic role these unique aircraft play in law enforcement, public safety, communications, national defense and homeland security.

The Texas Military Forces Open House also welcomes the American Veterans’ Traveling Tribute with the emotional centerpiece of their presentation – a scale replica of the iconic Vietnam Memorial Wall. The Cost of Freedom Tribute will arrive Thursday after which the Vietnam Memorial Wall will be available for viewing on Mabry’s parade field for the public to HONOR - RESPECT - REMEMBER those who have sacrificed their lives for our country's freedom.

Families can meet our newest American citizens on Saturday at 11 a.m. when the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will host a special Naturalization Ceremony with the AVTT Vietnam Memorial Wall serving as the emotional backdrop. Candidates will include serving / retired U.S. military members and others from the Central Texas area.

The American Heroes event also hosts the CODE3 Career Fair which introduces recruiting teams from law enforcement, the military and local volunteer service organizations to share information about career opportunities.

Admission and parking are free to the American Heroes Air Show which is proud to be part of the annual 2013 Texas Military Forces Open House on April 20 & 21 at historic Camp Mabry in the heart of Austin. Event hours at 8 am to 5 pm
