Aviation Centennial at Floyd Bennett

Aviation Centennial at Floyd Bennett

December 17 marks the centennial of the Wright brothers’ first flight. To celebrate the occasion, the Gateway National Recreation Area is hosting a day of fun and education at Floyd Bennett Field.

Festivities include exhibits and tours of the control tower and restored vintage planes. A full-scale replica of the pilot station of the 1903 Wright Flyer will also be on display. Visitors will learn about the aviation history of Floyd Bennett Field – from those who were there.

Everyone is invited – especially WW II veterans to the Ryan Visitor center at 10a.m. Light refreshments will be served when the exhibition ends at 2:30p.m.
