One parking pass for the VIP reserved parking area just for the Flight Line Club and Corporate Chalets is included with every purchase and offers the closest available parking.  You’ll also enter through a special VIP entrance.  Best of all, when the show is over, you’ll exit the VIP reserved parking via a special route away from the crowds and traffic and be on your way home with ease!

    Thank you for listening to last years comments. The food set-up was much better this year. I have purchased VIP tickets for the last three years and every year it has been well worth it. Looking forward to the 2018 show!!!

  2. Teresa says:

    Had a good time on Sunday however I was very disappointed that we did NOT receive a program for the event, I even asked a vendor who was selling t-shirts and hats but he didn’t have any either, we got there a little after 10, what happened? Would have loved to be able to follow everything

    • NY Air Show says:

      Teresea, we’re sorry about that. On Friday we encountered some serious weather confditions that took out approximately half of the programs we had printed.

  3. Carlos says:

    If i am attending with my family including 3 children under 9 years old. Do i have to purchase 5 flight line club vip tickets? is there a discount for children?

    • NY Air Show says:

      That is correct. Children 2 and under are free in the Flight Line Club and everyone else will need a ticket.

  4. henry duquette says:

    I printed out my ticket for my pre-paid 7/1/17 flight line club VIP pass. Parking is included but I don’t see anything about parking on this ticket? Is there a second printout I should be looking for specifically for parking? Thank you.

    • NY Air Show says:

      The pdf should contain the number of tickets you purchased as well as a an extra page, which is the parking pass. If not, please give our box office a call at 877.877.7677 and they will get you squared away.

  5. Ami says:

    I understand that the airshow will begin at noon.
    Until what time is the show?
    What is the recommendation of the time to be in the place?
    What is the time estimation when we leave the area?

  6. Jim says:

    I’ve never been to an air show, but have been to many car races. Do folks typically bring hearing protection ?

  7. Al Steinberg says:

    I am disabled and have a power scooiter. Any problem using the scooter from the vip ,arking area to the vip ,tent?

  8. Craig says:

    Will I be able to leave the flight line club area and go to my car at all during the show. I have some camera equipment I don’t want to carry until the show starts Thanks

  9. Alan Bell says:

    I bought two general admission tickets for July 2. Is there any way I can exchange them for July 1? We have family that got tickets for Saturday and it would be more fun for us all to go together.

  10. Martin G says:

    There was an issue last year with the food service, long lines and running out of food. What changes will be done this year to prevent that? Other than that, it was a phenomenal event, and we will be going this year too.

    • NY Air Show says:

      There were issues in 2016 and we have been working diligently to improve the flow in the Flight Line Club, directly related to it’s setup and directing people to the various food stations within, instead of everyone gathering at one food station.

  11. Lisa says:

    Are pets allowed? Also, with the Flight Line VIP seating, is there room adjacent to sit with a blanket? I want to bring my family and be able to take pictures without obstructing the view of any other guests.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Pets are not allowed.

      There is a lot of room in the Flight Line Club, but I don’t think you would enjoy sitting on a blanket placed over a black top airport tarmac.

      You will have plenty of room to take pictures. Most people already do that and we encourage it.

  12. Aaron says:

    Great show last year. If I wanted to bring my young daughter (2 years old) would I need a separate Flight Line VIP ticket for her?

  13. SV says:

    What is the refund policy if the show is canceled due to weather? Will Sat. VIP tickets be honored on Sun? What if the weekend is a washout?

  14. Frank Ballatore says:

    Hi –

    I purchased a Flight Line Club VIP ticket and will be taking photos. May I bring a collapsible camping chair?


  15. Debra Williams says:

    Can’t wait to see this show!
    It’s been on my bucket list.
    I was wondering…
    Will the Thunderbirds be performing too?
    Or will it just be the Blue Angels?
    I think they both are awesome!

  16. Joe says:

    I cannot wait to see the Blue Angels at this year’s event. My family has been to the show before and each year it’s better and better. The USAF Thunderbirds last year and now the ultimate!! The Airshow organizers deserve a round of applause for turning this into a must see event. As a vet I appreciate it all.

    I have a question. I purchased 4 VIP tickets and was wondering if this will allow my kids to meet the Blue Angels ground crew and pilots at all? If not, it is not a big deal. Last year they were able to meet the F-18 pilot.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Joe, thanks for your support! Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your son will be able to meet the Blue Angels since it all depends on their ground operations for the show.

  17. Jane says:

    My brother are Capt from Air Force in Brazil his come to the first time to the show , deffinely I will get VIP tickets to him is my third time to the event.

  18. Frank Ballatore says:

    I called the 877 number, but want to be sure. I was told I could take photos with a telephoto lens and tripod from the Flight Line VIP section. I was at the show last year and saw some people taking photos with similar equipment, and wanted to make sure that the rules haven’t changed. Please get back to me so that I can buy my tickets today!

  19. Joe Caparaso says:

    Hi! If we already have Flight Line tickets for the Saturday in September, will these be re-issued for Saturday July 1st?


  20. JimD says:

    I am planning on purchasing several VIP tickets with parking. I’m bringing my elderly parents who cannot walk a very far distance. Is there parking or drop off that would allow me to take them to the VIP tent ? I assume no stairs are required.

    • NY Air Show says:

      The parking pass you will receive with your Flight Line Club VIP tickets gets you access to the VIP Parking Lot just outside of the VIP entrance gate. Please keep in mind that this is an air show and there is some walking involved. We would recommend bringing a wheelchair or walker to make sure they are comfortable. No stairs throughout the event, so you should be fine on that front.

  21. Bill Evans says:

    what if I purchased general admission tickets and want to change to VIP tickets, can I do that and how?

  22. thomas yates says:

    how early is the parking lot crew going to let us in?
    thank you all of the volunteers that make this happen.
