Each year, the Bensen Days Event Team puts forth great effort of producing the Event. Its goal is to promote rotorcraft education, safety and comradery. By providing a framework wherein vendors, builders, pilots and the public can gather and make exchanges, the goal will hopefully be achieved over time. Thus the ultimate goal of the Event is to once and for all eliminate the phrase, Gyroplanes...The best kept secret in aviation.
Bensen Days has always been primarily a gyroplane event. However, since many enthusiasts either aspire to helicopter flying or are current or former helicopter pilots, both disciplines are common at the event. There are many principles in common between all the varieties of rotorcraft. It is also not uncommon to see powered-parachutes, trikes and a variety of other Experimental Aircraft at the Event. Fascination with aviation has no real boundaries. All forms of aircraft and aviation enthusiast are welcome and encouraged to come!!
