Van Sant Airport & Park
|Other Link||Van Sant Airport Website|
Travel back in time and experience the Golden Age of Flight at Van Sant Airport and Park. Located on Cafferty Road in scenic Erwinna, Van Sant offers rides and instructions in a number of styles of small planes and gliders. Freedom's Wings International, a therapeutic recreational program for paraplegic pilots, is locally based at the airport.
At any given time, privately owned vintage airplanes take off and land here. This is an ideal setting to spend an afternoon with family and friends, bring a picnic, go for a ride or enjoy the show.
Join us on the last Saturday of each month, May through September, for a 'Dinner and Movie' night with discounted biplane rides and special entertainment that can include:
- Antique Cars
- Art Exhibits
- Flea Markets
- Live Music
- Motorcycle and Tractor Shows
There is something for the whole family. Children's games are held until the movie starts at dark, shown on the doors of the airplane hangar. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets. The fun starts around 4 pm. There is a $15 donation/adult; free for kids under 10. Proceeds go towards moving and restoring the 1800s barn for the museum called 'History House.'
