Wright B Flyer

The Wright “B” Flyer Hangar/Museum is once again open for visitors on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. so please come out for a visit.  Check the Flyer website for announcements of closings around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, other holidays and rarely for special events.

Wilbur and Orville Wright built America’s first airplane factory in Dayton in 1910, and the Model B was its first product. For a generation, Wright “B” Flyer Inc. has celebrated the legacy of the Wright brothers by flying and displaying a modern lookalike  - built to modern standards with modern materials and components.- of that first production airplane. 

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