2010 Become a Pilot Day

Innovations in Flight

Family Day and Outdoor Aviation Display

Join us for Innovations in Flight Family Day and Outdoor Aviation Display on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia. Each year, around 50 vintage, recreational, and home-built aircraft are put on display outside the Udvar-Hazy Center. Pilots answer questions about their aircraft, and in some cases visitors can sit inside the cockpit.

This year, we're celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United States Air Force. The following military aircraft will attend the event.
