Open Cockpit: H-34 Choctaw Helicopter

Look inside this classic utility helicopter!

H-34 Choctaw Helicopter

Look inside this vintage aircraft on March 17 and 18, and learn about its history from the crew who has lovingly restored it.

The H-34 was the last of the really powerful piston-engined helicopters built in the US. It saw extensive use as a submarine chaser, utility/liaison, troop transport, airborne ambulance, cargo ship, and even gunship. This one served with Air America during the Vietnam War.

Find out more about the H-34 Choctaw.

Open Cockpit weekends at the Pacific Coast Air Museum are your chance to get up close to selected aircraft and look inside. We raise the canopies and open the doors to give you an unobstructed view so you can see what a genuine fighter plane, attack plane, transport, helicopter, or other type is like from the inside!
