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". Held annually in spring, 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

    Headlining the Aviation Day event for 2013 is the Flagship Detroit, a 1937 Douglas DC-3 restored to her former American Airlines glory. The Flagship Detroit Foundation operates the aircraft, which will be available for tours. For details see their flyer. Skyhawk Ventures returns with their restored Douglas A-4C Skyhawk Navy attack aircraft, which will perform fly-bys during the event. Other warbird types expected include Beech T-34, North American T-28 and an Aero L-39 high-performance jet trainer. Retro Flight Warbird Formation Demonstration Team will conduct several formation flyovers throughout the day. All told, approximately 50 aircraft of all types are expected to be on display. To get an idea of what to expect, see the official Participant List or browse through our Photos section. There are also several videos on YouTube. Search for "Aviation Day Vero Beach".
    Check back frequently als we will soon post the list for 2013 participants and update it as participants are confirmed.

What to do

    In addition to checking out the static display aircraft on the ramp, visitors can try their hand at EAA Chapter 99s Flight Simulators, which are set up with the latest version of MS Flight Simulator X with add-ons and accessories.
