The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a true “living” museum of antique aviation located in the historic town of Rhinebeck, New York. The old Aerodrome is home to one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world, many of which regularly take to the air for thrilling demonstrations during our weekend airshows.
The Aerodrome features aeroplanes, automobiles, motorcycles, early engines and memorabilia from 1900-1935. In addition to the airshows, there are four museum buildings displaying aircraft form the Pioneer Era, World War I and the Lindbergh/Barnstorming era.
During exciting weekend air shows, the Aerodrome turns back the hands of time and relives the years of early aviation. The colorful era of early aviation 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 plus Barnstorming Aircraft.
Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome’s museum and grounds are open daily from 10am to 5pm on weekdays, and from 10am to 5:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
