What is Aviation Day?
Held annually since 2003, Aviation Day is an opportunity for the public to come out to the Vero Beach Municipal Airport for a little "Airplane Time". Over the years, Aviation Day has grown from a little "fly in" to a successful family oriented community event. Every year we welcome several thousand visitors, aviation minded friends and future aviators.
What to see
Approximately 40 aircraft of all types are planned to be on
display. The star of the show will be EAA´s B-17 "Aluminum Overcast", which will be open for ground tours. For more information and to reserve a flight on the B-17, visit www.B17.org or call 800-359-6217. To get an idea of what to expect on Aviation Day, browse through our Photos section. There are also several videos on YouTube. Search for "Aviation Day Vero Beach".
