Seattle Helicopter Airways

Cessna Helicopters at the Worlds Fair

The Cessna Skyhook was operated at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair by Seattle Helicopter Airways, Inc. The Fair created a passenger market for the Seattle dealer and it is reported that over 10,000 passengers were carried during the Fair by three operating Skyhooks. To get the complete history on this aircraft and to see photos of it flying past the Space Needle (in its original gold paint scheme), go to: I built this model a couple of years ago after seeing a photo of the real aircraft flying over the Space Needle. This model has been entered in local and national contests and has received several awards. It was a pleasure to build something that represents a unique piece of Seattle's history.

Terry, I just bought this kit off Ebay, I was wondering if you had any templates for the Seattle decals, paint types, or additional tips for completing it the way you did yours?

cstout... just saw your post today. Have you tried the site? It has a ton of info on the CH-1. I wasn't able to get a good shot of the N number for the red one, so I just made up a number using the month/year of the build.

Love your model. I'm a modeler, too, and want to model the blue one I flew in as a passenger at the Fair in 1962. I have the kit and lots of references, but can't seem to nail down the N-number. Would you happen to know the N-number of the blue one?
