PEEC News:

The community is invited to take a virtual helicopter ride with Classic Air Medical at PEEC’s Summer Family Evening.

This live-streamed event is 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 17. Participants will learn about the important work that Classic Air Medical does as an air medical transfer service. Del Norte Credit Union is sponsoring PEEC’s Summer Family Evenings all summer long!

Viewers will get a tour of the helicopter and then take off. The helicopter will fly over the nature center and around Los Alamos. Participants are encouraged to watch on a laptop or phone, so they can go outside and see if the helicopter flies over their home.

Summer Family Evenings are taking place via Zoom every Wednesday in June and July (except July 1). These events start at 6 p.m. and provide virtual fun for the whole family!

Registration is required to get the link and password for the Zoom broadcast. Visit to sign up for this event and other upcoming programming.
