Gamera Highlighted at College Park Aviation Museum

To get ready for the upcoming flight of the new Gamera II human-powered helicopter, you can now recall Gamera I's world record-setting flights, and see vehicle components up close, at the College Park Aviation Museum.

The museum is located at 1985 Corporal Frank Scott Drive in College Park and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The exhibit will be in place until the end of the year.

The Gamera team will launch the second iteration of the vehicle in June as they prepare to compete for the Sikorsky Prize.
