    I’m seeing the schedule for the performers but I see nothing about static displays. A real good static display can make or break an air show.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hi Karen, details on our static displays will be updated as we get closer to the show! Stay tuned on our Facebook page and email list for exciting updates as we announce our performers and statics. We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 show!

    I’ve purchased a Pit Pass as I’ve done in the past. Is parking included in the Pit Pass purchase as in the past, I did see changes this year which is a plus, but I didn’t see any mention of parking being apart of the cost.

    • NY Air Show says:

      Hey Clark, yes, parking is included in the photo pit pass. Thanks for being a part of this special offering!

  3. Mike Yorio says:

    I know the gates open at 9 a.m., but (1) what time does the show actually start; (2) what’s the general schedule of performers; and (3) about what time are the Thunderbirds expected to go on? Thanks!

    • NY Air Show says:

      Flying will start around 12 Noon, the rest is way too early, won’t have those details finalized until a couple weeks before the show

  4. Richard Tatum says:

    Hello! …. When we get off the Metro North at Beacon, where exactly do we direct a cab to take us …. AND …. when the show is over, where do we go to take a cab back to the station?

    • NY Air Show says:

      Take it to the airport terminal. From there, you will need to walk into the show from 1st St. The terminal is where you can be picked up from as well.

  5. Joe says:

    Hi! I live in Washingtonville, is there access to the back gate from the other side of 747 or will that side be closed? Would I need to enter through the main entrance on 207?


    • NY Air Show says:

      Each spectator will be able to bring one sealed bottle of water up to 1 liter in size. We recommend everyone bring their own seating as chairs are not provided in General Admission.

  6. Scott Dickinson says:

    Greetings, are easy up canopies or beach umbrellas allowed in the parking area outside of the show grounds?

    • NY Air Show says:

      No sir. The parking area is only for parking. Security will be monitoring to make sure that everyone who enter the parking area, enters the show.

  7. Laurie says:

    My father is a vetran and not in the best of health. I’d like to bring him to the air show and maybe bring a shade tent and a few coolers sense he is diabetic and needs his insulin. Last time I was there you weren’t allowed to bring any beverages onto the grounds. Do personal make acceptions to disabled veterans?


    • NY Air Show says:

      Laurie, tents or canopies of any kind are not allowed as they do not mix well with low flying aircraft. Spectators are allowed to bring one sealed bottle of water up to 1 liter in size. You will be able to also bring in a small personal cooler with any medical or dietary items for your father. When entering the show, please ask to speak with the security supervisor at the entrance.
