    Looking if you have a lost and found location, my wife has lost her drivers license. We were at the Saturday Air Show.
    We believe we lost it there.

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey there, we do – I’ll pass the message along to our team to keep their eye out. Can you pop us an email at so we can add your name and information to the list of items for which someone is looking?

  2. Danny Cain (714)473-6180 says:

    Great show! Sadly, I lost my wedding band (men’s gold) on the way out. Please let me know if anyone reports finding one.Thanks!

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Danny, 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 wedding band. We’ll do everything we can to reunite it with you if we find it!

  3. Tabitha says:

    On our tickets it states no outside food/beverage? Are we not allowed to bring a bottle of water this year? If not, will there be water stations so we can refill the purchased bottles? Bringing kiddos and staying for the whole day, just trying to plan accordingly and not hoping to spend $20 on just water. Thanks!

  4. Cory says:

    Purchased the gen parking but I have a disabled veteran who cannot accept the gen parking. I thought the parking was going to be the same as 2017, so I did not look at the preferred parking. How can I get him preferred parking now that it requires a code for Saturday? I don’t mind paying the extra, but he needs closer parking from gen location. He is handicapted and in a wheelchair.

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Cory, Saturday Preferred Parking is completely sold out for the day. (It never required a code.) We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but we have a limited number of spots at Preferred Parking and the F-35 demo is quite a draw! It’s one of the reasons that we encourage people to buy their parking super early, so they are guaranteed to reserve a spot. However, there are handicap spots in both the Preferred and General Parking areas, so your loved one will have a handicap spot. All lots are grass (even preferred) so we recommend giving yourself just a little extra time if you need it.

  5. Mike says:

    Two questions:
    1.) Is VIP flight line parking the same as Preferred parking? I have trouble walking and have a handicapped tag.

    2.) What is the best way to come in from the Orlando area?

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Mike, no, VIP parking is a separate area and entrance only for our Flight Line Club and Photo Pit guests. Are you a FLC ticketholder? If so, your entrance is right by the VIP parking lot. Preferred parking is right next to the General Admission Gate, and so is an excellent option for our handicap guests, though there will be handicap parking in both the general admission and preferred parking lots. Please note that all lots are grass, so please give yourself extra time to make it in. See our “Getting There” page for directions from Orlando.

  6. Clay says:

    Great job of answering people’s questions.

    #1) We are coming from less than 1 mile away from south side of airport. Should we walk or bike over? Will there be places to lock bikes to fence at entrance?

    #2) May we bring water into event? Can the H2O be in insulated containers?

    • Laney Poye says:

      Thanks, Clay! I check in multiple times a day to help everyone out. 🙂 I’d recommend walking over biking, only because there’s not a designated area for bike lock-up, and we would not want you to have something happen to your bike. Yes, water up to 1L per person is fine! If by insulated container you mean like a S’well bottle or thermos, yes, that’s fine. Just no coolers.

  7. Rodrigo Aquino says:

    I’m trying to buy tickets but the website freezes when I click on the buy tickets button. Will tickets be sold at the event?

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Rodrigo, sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with the website. You can also call our box office at 877-301-8499 to order tickets over the phone, as you’ll want to save the 25% off that you get for buying in advance! Tickets and Parking will be sold at the door, but will be full price. We’d love to help you get that extra discount, so give them a call today!

      • Rodrigo says:

        I was able to access the website now. Do I still have time to buy them online? Will the tickets be delivered in time (for Sunday)? Thanks!

        • Laney Poye says:

          Yes, they should go straight to your email – if they didn’t get there, let our box office know and they can resend!

  8. Joe says:

    Heard that the seating area will be on the south side of the runway this year. Last year was on the north side of the runway. Is this true?


  9. Rich Langer says:

    I would like to bring 2 Chinese Nanchang CJ-6 aircraft for static display. Who would I contact for information on static displays?

  10. Jim Stoltenborg says:

    Just bought 2 VIP seats does that come with parking pass right near VIP entrance. My wife has bad ankle and tryi,g to get as close to bio entrance

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Jim, we will have golf carts available to transport our handicap VIP guests over to the gate – parking is included with your VIP package. Please make sure that you have your handicap placard displayed in your car and our parking attendants will direct you where to go!

    • Laney Poye says:

      We have handicap parking available in both the general admission and preferred parking – please purchase like normal, and bring your handicap parking placard on the day of the show. Our parking attendants will direct you to an area close to the admissions gate.

  11. Bruce says:

    How long after March 1st is the $12 advance parking rate available and is the $12 advance rate different than the special rate during your 35 hour parking intro sale.
    This answer is on the FAQ page:
    Parking is $12 in advance and $15 at the event. Preferred parking will be available for $15 only in advance. Parking will go on sale on March 1st.
    The following statement is on the parking page:
    Pre-paid general and preferred parking will go on sale March 4th at a special rate during our 35 hour parking intro sale.
    Which is correct?

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hey Bruce, we are currently running a 48-hour 50% off sale on the parking passes – after that, they will move from $10 to $12 per car up until the day of the show. Parking went on sale on March 4 – we’ll let our editing team know to fix the FAQs page. The Parking Page is correct!

  12. Kj says:

    Hi guys,

    I’ve performed at air shows for many years , both as a civilian and military pilot and have seen a LOT of promtional posters.

    The poster for your show is the NICEST poster I have every seen. Amazing.. that said, would you consider posting a high res jpg of it? Or provide an avenue to purchase it?

    Hats off to the graphic designer!!!!!

    Sent from my iPad

    • Laney Poye says:

      Thank you, KJ!! We’ll pass the message along. We have talked about pushing out the posters for sale as well as the t-shirts. 🙂

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Nick, we do discounts for all patrons who purchase tickets in advance here on the website. There are no additional discounts.

    • Laney Poye says:

      Hi Kathy, ticket prices are posted here, and are available for purchase now. The parking is $20 on site, $15 in advance, with purchases going live on the website about 30 days before the show.

  13. Andy says:

    Family of 7. If I buy 5 general admission and 2 Photopit passes, can the 2 from Photopit come into the general admission area?

    • Laney Poye says:

      Yes, the photo pass guests can travel around the general admissions area and the static displays, with additional access to the photo pit. Guests without photo pit passes will not be allowed to come into the photo pit area however.

    • Laney Poye says:

      No, beach umbrellas, pop-up tents and awnings are not allowed. You are allowed to bring a hand-held umbrella no larger than 5 feet.

    • Laney Poye says:

      Parking sales will open up approximately 30 days before the show. We’ll post about it on our Facebook page as well as send out emails to our ticketholders, so you can buy in advance for the discounted price!

  14. Cyndy says:

    Outstanding, successful Melbourne Air & Space show 2018. Thank you all for your tireless efforts to address, answer, solve all questions and concerns. It was a wonderful weekend (we are blessed with good weather here for sure) but also having the pilots out and about in the area prior to the show makes them so approachable. The day of the events the pilots were out there mingling with everyone, just imagine how many young lives will not fall in love with flying and aspire to one day be a Thunderbird too!!

  15. Colleen says:

    I usually purchase a year ahead for the next Airshow event. Do you have projected dates and who will be appearing. Usually advanced tickets and promo prices are given after the show. I look forward to this event in Melbourne, FL every year. Thank you for all the work you ALL do!

  16. Michael Willis 7729057523 says:

    Here is a real good question.
    The current Federal Government sending bill Expires Tonight and 12:00am.
    If no deal is reached…
    Will their be an Airshow this weekend?

  17. Caryl Bushnell says:

    I’m a snowbird from upstate NY and so excited to see another show! Have been to many and Thrilled with everyone!

  18. Dan Bork says:

    1. When ordering online, will I be able to download ticket to phone and show electronics or do I need to print it?

    2. Will I be able to purchase Saturday tickets online as late as Saturday morning?

    • Air & Space Show says:

      1-Yes. The tickets will be emailed to you as a PDF attachment that you will be able to present for scanning at the gate.
      2-Possibly, if we do not sell out.

  19. Mike Giska says:

    Was considering getting VIP passes. Does VIP pass guarantee parking in the Red Lot along General Aviation Rd?

  20. Jonathan Hawes says:

    I was wondering if you have RV parking for the event? We will be heading out on Saturday, and thought we could stop at the airshow for the day, before going north.

    I appreciate your consideration.
