Overview

The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a true “living” museum of antique aviation located in the historic town of Rhinebeck, New York. We present one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world, as well as automobiles, motorcycles, early engines and memorabilia spanning the period from 1900-1939. During our exciting weekend air shows, the Aerodrome turns back the hands of time and relives the early years of aviation (weather permitting). This colorful era is brought back to life amidst the roar of rotary engines and is great entertainment for all ages. The Saturday shows chronicle the history of flight with pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh era aircraft taking to the skies. If the winds are calm you will even see our 1909 Bleriot (the oldest flying aircraft in the United States) take to the air. The Sunday shows feature a World War I dogfight as well as barnstorming aircraft. In addition to weekend aerial demonstrations, the Aerodrome also offers four museum buildings housing static displays of aircraft from the pioneer, World War I and Lindbergh/barnstorming eras which are open to the public seven days a week from May to October.

I always try to visit the Aerodrome once every few years. Even though I live in Rhinebeck it is truly an amazing piece of history. If you come to Rhinebeck it is a must do.

Seeing the old reproduction airplanes was great. The flying exhibition was very impressive. The air show itself was a bit hokey, but it represented an old time barnstorming show of the past. If you like airplanes and air history, try this.

Excellent museum of planes from the very beginning of aviation. They even offer bi plane rides on certain weekends which was a lot of fun.

Visited for the first time with family visiting from England. Was pleasantly surprised with the quality of flying and general show. Toured the hangers to view the static displays. Will return again to see the Saturday show.
