Thousands of spectators see the air show from the crowd line, but far less get to experience it without the crowd.  Join the experienced spectators in the ultimate Air Show VIP viewing spot, the Flight Line Club!  Be one of the few to enjoy this VIP experience on the flight line directly at show center.

The performers will be soaring across the airfield in front of you and the static aircraft displays will be just behind you.  A catered lunch will be served from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm with draft beer, soft drinks and water served all day long with shaded seating available inside the Flight Line Club VIP tent. When you’re ready to watch the show take a seat directly on the flight line and watch the jets soar overhead.  As an Air Show VIP you’ll receive an official event program and a commemorative event credential. One reserved parking permit for the Air Show VIP parking is included with every Flight Line Club VIP order and offers the closest available parking.  Kids age 2 & under are free.

    Good morning. I was at the air show yesterday, Sat., 30Mar, mostly in the flight line club/VIP section. I lost a white gold and diamond chain bracelet that I’ve worn for over 30 years. Please text, call or email me if you have found it. Thank you. Best regards, Rochelle Powers 561.401.6506 rochellegp1@gmail.com

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Rochelle, so sorry to hear that. I’ll pass your information along to our Director of Event Services. We do have a lost and found at the air show, but as far as I know, no one turned in a bracelet. We’ll do everything we can to reunite it with you if we find it!

  2. Terry says:

    Please clarify… is there one VIP pass per order, or per ticket? Each of my tickets says VIP Parking across the top. I purchased 4 adult tickets but need 2 parking passes because we are arriving separately. If it is only 1 pass per order, I would have purchased two sets of two instead. 🙁

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Dean, no outside food is allowed. You are allowed to bring up to 1L of water with you. However, if you are a Flight Line Club member, your food is all included! So no need to even go and buy lunch, it is provided. For General Admission guests, we have lots of variety of food concessionaires.

  3. Dean Heimmermann says:

    Is there an announcement made say 10 min before each event so we can mingle at the exhibits and get back to the photo pit in time for the next shot

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Dean, yeah, believe me, you won’t be able to miss the announcements – our Air Boss team is awesome! We have sounds systems throughout the show so no matter where you are, you know what’s going on.

  4. Barbara Penaroque says:

    Tried to purchase the VIP tickets for Saturday and they are sold out 😪 do you have a stand by list or any chance of expanding and having more tickets available for Saturday

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Barbara, we are completely sold out and will not be having any additional tickets made available. We want our FLC guests to be comfortable and not overcrowded! Can you make it out on Sunday? Sunday is a little lighter, and will have the exact same performers.

  5. Mike Stewart says:

    Hello. Is there a dedicated Uber/Lyft pickup or drop off area? If not, where would you suggest to meet drivers? Thank you!

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Mike, there is not; however your best bet would likely to have them drop off and pick up over near the general admission parking area (see our Parking page). They may also be okay to drop you near the Preferred Parking, but depends on how they are coming into the airport area. That’s a great question and I’ll be sure to pass it along to our site ops team for the future so we can designate a definite spot in the future for app-based car services.

  6. Patrick White says:

    When I paid for my tickets I didnt get any conformation number or email. My payment is pending. How are my tickets delivered?

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Patrick, you should have received an email with your tickets attached – please call our box office at 877-301-8499.

  7. Casey says:

    Purchased 3 x VIP tickets for my wife, child and myself.. We are SUPER excited! Read on the prior posts that a welcome email will be sent out and just following up on that, as well as I read that there will be assigned seating in the VIP area, correct? How do we ensure that all three of us will be seated together? Thank you!

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Casey, so yes, we will have a welcome email – I’ll check with our Events Director to make sure you got on that distribution list! And there is reserved seating in the VIP area, but not assigned, so you don’t have to worry about getting seats together. The VIP area opens at 10 am, so you can get there as early as you like and grab viewing seats together.

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Terry, yes, but we do recommend it be a walking stroller or a smaller device, only because the VIP area will have lots of tables and chairs which could maneuver. That being said, our volunteers in the VIP area would be happy to help you park the stroller in a location near the VIP area so you could access it close by, but not have it in your way during the show!

  8. Craig says:

    2 years ago the VIP area was very crowded and it was very difficult to get to the food and beverage area and sit anywhere under the shaded cover. Have any improvements been made since then?

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Craig, yes, we’ve done a lot of things to improve on the VIP experience over the past few years. We’ve expanded the size of the VIP area so that there is more seating and are working with a different food vendor. I also recommend that if you have a choice of days, come out on Sunday – it’s typically less busy!

      • 7274575208 says:

        There won’t be any Thunderbirds or Blue Angels showing up at the show? Last couple of years they were spectacular! To see the fleet roar across the sky was amazing!

    • Laney Poye says:

      No, pets are not allowed. The Air Show is on a live air field with loud noises, crowds and active airplanes, which is not a great environment for our four-legged friends. Thanks for asking before bringing a pet!

  9. Mary Jane Lipsett 202-491-3654 says:

    I have 2 elders that have trouble walking. Would there be a way to have someone help escort them to VIP area?

    • Laney Poye says:

      We do have golf carts available on the inside of the show – at the gate, just mention to the volunteers stationed there that your loved ones will need some assistance, and we can have someone come pick them up to get over to the VIP area. Once they get to the VIP check in, they will need to make it down to the VIP tent on their own because there’s not room for the golf carts to navigate over there, but it’s not too far of a walk from where you get your VIP badges.

    • Laney Poye says:

      We’ll have teams from some of the local aerospace companies out to demonstrate some of the technology with which they are working.

    • Laney Poye says:

      Yes, you can drive in and park your RV in the lot during the day, but of course cannot leave it overnight in the lot. Thanks for asking!

    • Laney Poye says:

      We offer larger % discounts for online ticket purchases prior to the show, so we do not offer any additional discounts. Right now you can purchase VIP tickets for 20% off.

    • Laney Poye says:

      If you are an avid photographer, we do recommend the Photo Pit area. It’s right next to the Air Boss station at show center and has the best views of the plane with less of a crowd, since we attendance is extremely limited for both Saturday and Sunday in the Pit. However, if you want a more comprehensive experience, the VIP area might be a better choice. It is also near show center, with fabulous views, but the ticket price includes lunch, drinks and other amenities. It’s a larger area however, so we sell more tickets to that, although it too is capped at a comfortable level. So it really just depends on your goal in attending the show! (Also both tickets include access to the concourse to check out the static displays.)

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Elizabeth, we’ll be sending out a detailed map to all our VIP guests shortly to show you where all that is located. Be in touch soon!

      • Beverly Burns says:

        Good afternoon – have you sent out the detailed map for the VIP area, including VIP parking? I have been trying to figure it out from the small map on the ticket.

        • Laney Poye says:

          Hey Beverly, we also have a link here on our Getting There page (https://airandspaceshow.com/getting-there/), which is a little bigger. You will follow the directions on your ticket to the VIP area. As well, our event services manager will be reaching out to welcome you as a VIP guest shortly, so look for her email if you have any additional questions!

  10. Liz Zeitler says:

    If you book VIP are they reserved seating? Is it guaranteed a seat? So if you have 100 VIP then you have 100 seats? I know it sounds silly but just wondering.

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Liz, not a silly question at all! Yes, VIP is reserved seating, and we limit the number of tickets sold on Saturday and Sunday to accommodate the space needed for all our VIP guests.

    • Laney Poye says:

      The aerial performances run from noon to 4 pm, and our headliner generally concludes the show. We cannot post advance exact times because the schedule is subject to slight variations.

  11. David B says:

    I would like to fly into Melbourne the morning of the airshow in a private plane. Do you know what time the Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) is in effect for the day? Can private planes fly into the airport in the morning and leave in the evening or afternoon?

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey David, please contact MLB – they will be able to give you guidance on that. It will likely come out closer to the date of the event however, as the schedule of performer arrivals gets set by the flight team.

  12. Kim says:

    I am wondering how close the vip parking is due to a family member being handicap. We have came previously in general admission and the walk was too much for him.

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Kim, the handicap parking is right near a separate gate for our VIP guests. We have golf carts ready to take guests back and forth from the parking area and get them up to where VIP check-in is.

        • Laney Poye says:

          Hi Mr. Shaun, you can absolutely just use a motorized wheelchair or have some one push you to the seating area – it’s not terribly far, we just have the golf carts in case someone would like the additional assistance.

  13. Robert says:

    Hello, What day do you think would be better for us to bring our nine year old granddaughter in the VIP area, the 30th or the 31st? Thank you!!! ; )

    • Laney Poye says:

      We recommend Sunday, because it’s much less crowded that day! The show at this time will be the same performers both days, so you won’t miss anything.

  14. Joanie Arseneault says:

    My father was a gunner on the B-17 he is 94. Is there a chance it will be available for viewing I do not see it on the display portion just performer. He would love for me to see it and him of course but he has always wanted me to because there are so few of them he figured that would not happen. I inquired about a flight too but just seeing it would be the next best thing.

    • Heather Stacy says:

      Hey Joanie! My grandfather is 94 and flew is retired Navy! Look me up on fb Heather Stacy (Gardiner) would love to chat! Side note: my grandmother was Rosie the Riveter! Also 94 years old! They’ve been married 74 years!

  15. Madison says:

    Is there a parking ticket to print with the Flight Line Clubhouse tickets or would I just show my event ticket for parking?

        • Terry says:

          Yes please clarify… each of my tickets also says VIP parking across the top. I purchased 4 adult tickets but need 2 parking passes. If it is only 1 pass per order, I would have purchased two sets of two instead.

  16. Jovanna Coriano says:

    We’ve never been to the Air show. Our 4 year old ABSOLUTELY LOVES planes. Would we get a decent view of planes and such with general admission?

    • Air & Space Show says:

      General Admission has a great view of the show, but the Flight Line Club comes with seating, a shaded tent, lunch and beverages.

  17. Ann says:

    Can we still bring folding chairs if we are sitting in the Flight Line Club? Members of our party are more comfortable in them than the padded chairs

  18. David M. Lane says:

    We are from 100 miles away never attended air show in your location but did attend in Cocoa Beach. Question my wife and I are older, she has limited/ reduced walking ability and uses a cane. How would viewing the show from the flight line be different from getting a hotel room with balcony right on the beach? Does Melbourne have such hotels? We realize we would not get the meal available as at flight line. Thanks!

    • Air & Space Show says:

      The biggest difference is that the show in Cocoa Beach was performed over the beach. The show in Melbourne is performed over the airport grounds and there are not any hotels in relation that the show can be viewed from.

  19. Diane Tremer says:

    WOW! ?????
    The show was fantastic! We were there from opening to closing time! The exhibits were great and booths were wonderful! Loved the B25 close up and the weather hurricane hunter! What a treat! All the air performances were outstanding! There were so many different ones and aircrafts. I’m definitely planning for next year as well! There were 5 of us and we enjoyed every minute! Even the French Patrouille de France were awesome they did incredible stunts and were so gracious to our country with several beautiful tributes! One of the booth vendors even remarked to us that she was so impressed with them in person as she was able to meet them! Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️ I loved all parts of the show and hope I don’t leave anything out I was truly overwhelmed! the Harrier, the Sky Typers ,the Heritage flight, F35, para commandos, our Thunderbirds, t- 33, T-6 Texan, Ken Pietsch is amazing scary stunts, B-25 Bomber was awesome ! Etc. etc. etc.
    I could go on forever! The displays F-16 viper, WC-130j Hurricane Hunter, E-2 D advanced Hawkeye, T38 Talon, T-6 Texan they were awesome !
    I did a lot of praying, because it was so scary that they went so so so close! I was always a big military fan and supporter for our country???? All I can say is the it made me tear up and love our country and ALL our servicemen and women more and more and more! ❤️
    God Bless them all! ??
