Wright "B" Flyer Inc. Museum on MGY

Visit the very interesting Wright "B" Flyer Inc. Museum on MGY as a destination or detour while visiting Dayton, Ohio! So many wonderful aviation things to see in Dayton - here is ONE MORE!

Mike Marra, Keystone Flight of Central PA

Background:

Wright “B” Flyer Inc. is an all-volunteer, membership-based, not-for-profit corporation located on the Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport near Dayton, Ohio. We fly one Model B look-alike during the summer months, and our hangar doubles as a museum.

Our flying airplane, No. 001, is available for fly-overs and static displays at public and private events. Honorary Aviator members are eligible for a free orientation flight.
In cooperation with the National Park Service and the U.S. Air Force, we display the non-flying Valentine Wright Model B replica in our hangar museum. We offer a speaker’s program for schools and community groups.

Mission Statement
To promote, through exhibition of Wright “B” Flyer lookalikes, public awareness of the Dayton, Ohio region, where the Wright Brothers lived, invented the airplane, and gave birth to modern aviation.
