Van Sant Airport and Park

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.

For information call 610-847-1119 or visit www.866mustfly.com.

Special Events at the Airport

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, motorcycle and tractor shows, art exhibits, live music, flea markets and auctions. 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 4:00 p.m. 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.'

Check the website for details on each monthly event and RSVP directly to Van Sant. Call 610-847-1119 of email baranddannie@yahoo.com as per the instructions on www.866mustfly.com. Registration required through Van Sant at least two weeks prior.
