OTTO the Helicopter

Ladies, Gentlemen & Kids of All Ages will enjoy this act that has become a favorite of Battle Creek patrons. Roger Buis will be returning in the famous Helicopter Clown OTTO, their last appearance here was in 2010.

OTTO Pilot Roger Buis
OTTO is a Schweizer 300C Helicopter and is the Mickey Mouse of the Airshow Industry. In Battle Creek, OTTO will fly faster than the speed of smell, demonstrate maneuverability & agility, mimic airplane aerobatics and perform the HARDEST maneuver in the airshow industry, the hover. If you think that's amazing, there is so much more in store. OTTO will also blow a bubble from bubble gum, play with a yo-yo and even race barrels like a horse. Kids and Adults alike will be amazed by this 15 minute performance by OTTO the Helicopter Clown. It all culminates with a great patriotic salute to our veterans and present defenders.
OTTO the Helicopter
OTTO Pilot: Roger Buis has been flying since 1980 and has over 18,000 total flight hours. In addition, he has been nominated for Army Aviator of the Year in Helicopters. The first helicopter that Roger ever flew solo actually was the Hughes TH-55 Osage (which was the predecessor to the Schweizer 300C). Roger has flown all types of helicopters, but got his start just like any other pilot, in fixed wing aircraft. He even now has his seaplane rating. In helicopters, Roger has done pretty much all there is to do from firefighting to movie filming (yes, flight instruction too). In addition, he is one of the only helicopter pilots in the world to tow a sailplane/glider with a helicopter. He is one of the best and most respected pilots in the industry.

Don't miss Roger fly in OTTO the Helicopter at this year's Field of Flight Air Show.
