May 5 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The 2018 Leaseweb Manassas Airshow
May 5th (Rain date: May 6th)

The 2018 Leaseweb Manassas Airshow is a 100% free to attend aviation event to be held at the Manassas Regional Airport on May 5th, 2018. The airshow features both civilian and military airshow performers from around North America in aircraft ranging from warbirds and vintage airplanes to unlimited class aerobatic and modern day military marvels of engineering. This year the airshow is highlighting many of the organizations in the area that promote careers in the trades and STEM. The event runs from 10AM to 4PM.

This increasingly popular airshow features the most amazing aerobatic performances plus a wide range of aircraft displays including some of the latest planes flying. And we get to be part of it.

Signup sheets now open on our website: http://eaa186.org/volunteers-2/

Static Aircraft Display: What better place to showcase your airplane than at the Manassas Airshow. During the airshow, EAA 186 Volunteers will be on hand to help assist the aircraft owners with crowd control and provide timely breaks for food, etc. Interested in displaying your aircraft, please contact Sande Miller-Long (vicepresident@eaa186.org) with your aircraft make, model and tail number before Tuesday may 1.

Pancake Breakfast and Grilled Lunch: Chapter 186 will once again support the Leaseweb Manassas AirShow by donating breakfast to the volunteers and lunch to the performers. We’ll also be selling hotdogs, burgers and pulled-pork to the public. This is a Chapter fund-raiser and many volunteers are needed including cashiers. Our pancake trailer will be parked on the ramp near the entrance by the terminal building. Look for the EAA Chapter 186 Grill and our sporty EAA 186 royal blue caps and cook aprons!

Young Eagles and EAA Membership Info Booth: As always, it’s our members who make this Chapter what it is. Your assistance and support at our info booths gives our EAA chapter more visibility and shows we are a vital contributor to the aviation community and the Manassas Regional Airport. Plus you get to view the entire airshow from a seat in the shade! Breakfast, lunch and all the water you drink — on the house!
