Aviation

If you are looking for aviation heritage, look no further than Greene County. Aviation heritage began here in Greene County, Ohio. Wilbur and Orville Wright flew their first airplane here at Huffman Prairie, which is now a national historic landmark. All within just a few miles, you can visit the National Museum of the United States Air Force, Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park, Huffman Prairie Flying Field and Interpretive Center, the Wright Brothers Memorial, and Wright State University Special Collections & Archives that contains the most complete collection of Wright brothers items.

It was at Huffman Prairie that Wilbur and Orville Wright developed aviation and performed the first circular flight. Visit this National Historic Landmark for free, observe their airfield from above in an open-cockpit biplane, or learn about it at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. These are just a few of the many ways to experience aviation in Greene County.

Enjoy the view of Greene County and the Dayton area from a seat in a vintage biplane. A low and slow flying open cockpit biplane allows you to experience the bird's eye view of farmlands, cityscape or follow the Great Miami River from above.
