To expedite the search and screen process, it is recommended that you keep your ID and personal items organized with the following:
We ask for your cooperation in keeping potentially dangerous items safely outside the base. ALL bags will be quickly inspected and all individuals are subject to search prior to entering the airshow flight line. If you elect not to return these items to your vehicle and choose to leave them at the security check point we will not be responsible for the return of the item. These measures are being taken to ensure everyone's safety.
- Ear protection
- Lip balm/Chapstick
- Camping Chairs/Folding Chairs (if not purchasing VIP seating)
- Comfortable Shoes
Pay Attention - Watch where you are walking. Trip hazards are everywhere. Stay aware of
your surroundings and watch for moving vehicles.
Drink Water - Stay hydrated. Water will be available throughout the Airshow area. Refreshments are normally available but you may bring a water bottle to fill from our free water stations. If you are drinking alcohol, please drink in moderation as alcohol can cause dehydration. Do not relay on sugary drinks for hydration.
Plan For Noise - Jets can make a lot of noise so we strongly suggest you bring earplugs or ear protection especially for the little ones.
Smoke In Designated Areas - Please smoke in designated areas only. Anyone smoking outside of the designated areas will be directed to the smoking areas.
Plan Ahead - Do find out where you can get medical aid or seek assistance if you need it. If you are in a group and you get separated, where will you meet? If you have children with you make sure they know how to get help if they get lost.
