Airshow layout/Parking: About: In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and maximize your enjoyment of the 2021 Binghamton Airshow, we will be implementing a Drive-In layout similar to a tailgate party at your favorite sporting event. Other airports in NY have done this setting with great success. Guests will be given a marked-out space to enjoy the show and watch the Aircraft fly above them. Guest will be allowed to bring lawn chairs, coolers, and picnics to the event. Open flames and glass bottles are not permitted at the airshow. Please visit the FAQ section for more information on prohibited items.

The Airfield will be broken into three areas: First Class (front row), Business Class (middle row), and Coach Class (Back Row). The map showing the layout is a draft. We will update it in more detail as we move forward. A copy will be provided to each guest upon entry in the complimentary 2021 Airshow Program.
