Default Oshkosh helicopters

Well there was a tip jet (70% H202) ship there with one pilot with 20 min
and a reported other pilot with a few hundred hours...

Sikorsky had a battery powered 269 on display with a duration spec of 15
min.

Safaris, Rotorways and Mosquitos and Larry Neals Butterfly wrapped up the
rotor craft.

Of note: The video produced by the EAA video group does not even mention
rotorcraft. The general opinion furnished by a number of rotorcraft
enthusisasts is that Oskhosh is not rotorcraft friendly. There maybe some
ammuntion for that opinion based on the EAA corporate level behavior, but
Geoff Downey, the Rotorcraft Chairman has sure put a bunch of energy into
making the rotorcraft welcome.
