What to bring: brimmed hat, sunglasses, sunblock, bottled water and snacks, a sack lunch of your choice, (if the weather forecast is for chilly weather, bring a jacket), strollers are welcome. Wear comfortable walking shoes, layers, bring a backpack or bag to hold your snacks and water and jackets. Bring money for souvenirs or concessions - optional. Bring a camera. Ear plugs for littles or those with sensitive ears might be good. Wear bright colored clothing to keep track of one another in the huge crowds of public school kids and adult patrons. Shade is extremely limited.

What NOT to bring: Alcohol, weapons of any kind.

The Foundation’s goal for the 2016 National Championship Air Races is to take the patron experience to an entirely new level through education, hands-on experiences, and greater interactivity. We expect patrons to be more informed, engaged, emotionally invested, and inspired.

Check in where, when, with whom: See Gia and Rachel at the parking area, next to the entrance gate,between 9:30-9:45am. Get your souvenir button (the first 100 to check in).

LATE ARRIVALS make us sad :-( We MUST enter as a group, at the same time, promptly at 10am, so, please don't be tardy. With a group of 200, our tardiness would throw off the entire schedule for all the field trips.

EARLY DEPARTURES allowed at your convenience. But you won't want to miss the fun. :-)

Directions:US 395N to Stead Exit

Parking: Designated Lot will be announced soon. We had special NNHS field trip parking last year, and expect the same thing this year.

GROUP PHOTO OP: Gather at the Military Aircraft display entrance at 2:00 if you'd like to be included in DIY photos and candids of the group.

Photo policy: Please do not post photos/videos of other people's children (in which the child is recognizable or more than 50% of the child's face is visible) to social media without the permission of that child's parent. Never post and then tag the parent, without prior permission. This is a matter of courtesy, as well as a matter of safety, and possibly law, i.e. if the child is in foster care. Please be respectful of the privacy wishes of others in the group. Thank you.
