An all-volunteer vintage Warbird unit in Arizona restores, maintains and operates WWII-era aircraft for the educational benefit of audiences in the US and Canada.Host site sponsors are needed to request appearances. They represent the visited community, and sponsor in-kind services and supplies to cover a portion of the expenses required to provide an attraction of this nature for one week. Host sponsors may be an individual or group consortium. They are fully collaborated with by our experienced planning team in order to achieve a unique and educational experience that is appreciated and remembered by the communities we visit.

Locations invited to host appearances in 2016 are Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and Ontario, Canada.
