Wings Over Paris is officially scheduled for May 11, 2019, at Paris Cox Field.

This event will be one to remember for aviation enthusiasts, as well as those in the community looking to witness a show the likes of no other.

Children 8-17 Fly FREE at Wings Over Paris!

Wings Over Paris Airshow will feature a EAA – Young Eagles Rally where kids 8-17 will have the opportunity to get a FREE ride in an airplane!

Founded in 1992, the Young Eagles program gives youth ages 8-17 a free ride in an airplane to introduce kids to the world of aviation. To date, Young Eagles has flown more than 2 million kids with the help of EAA – The Spirit of Aviation network of volunteer pilots and ground volunteers.

Since 2016, pilots and volunteers coordinated and gave more than 200 kids a free flight at the Wings Over Paris Airshow, many their very first airplane ride!

The event has something for everyone; delicious food, entertainment for kids, and exhibits for the entire family.

A special treat at the Wings Over Paris Airshow will be Victory Flight Training’s Marchetti S-211! Tom Paquin and Chris Koelzer will show off this Italian made military jet trainer with high-speed passes and maneuvers.

Also, at the show will be Jeremy Holt’s Pitts Model 12 which he has named ‘Pegasus’ after the mythical winged stallion.

Another performer for the event is Kate Kyer who will be tearing up the sky in her hot rod Pitts S-2B.
