Not sure if this is a coronation, ordination, or installation. It sure is a celebration. Nate Hammond was born and raised at the Aerodrome. He flies as Ghostwriter Airshows, and now, he is Chairman of the Board at the International Council of Airshows. With Kelly, his wife, on an early preflight, and with brother Clay, ORA Trustee and Chief Pilot. We are so proud!

Clay Hammond grew up at the Aerodrome–his Dad, Bill, was the Manager. He is our Chief Pilot and was responsible for the gathering of Donors who funded our acquisition of the Stinson Detroiter. Carol Hammond has been a volunteer, Office Manager, and is now back in the office making sure we're doing it right. We can't wait to see what third generation son, Will, does.

Sometimes he's an airline pilot and sometimes he's the Black Baron. Alex Jameison fell in love with flying at the Aerodrome and followed his dream. Here he is with a couple of pioneers-the 1912 Taube replica and the 1910 Hanriot replica wing being recovered. Help us keep the dream alive: https://oldrhinebeck.org/annual-appeal/ Thanks for your support.

We have lots of windows–you can help. https://oldrhinebeck.org/annual-appeal/ Thanks!

Words cannot explain how wonderful our hangar dance was-

It was cold- however, everyone’s hearts were warm. So many new faces having fun and supporting us. is a must use for your next event if you are having one-
food was phenomenal and I cannot say enough about THE JAZZ PIONEERS who are not on social media. A quick taste is in our story. These wonderful and talented people are a must see whenever they play.

Thank you to all from the bottom of our hearts. Season 66 is going to be great!

Set up and ready- a huge thank you to our sponsors!     .fireworks          T & c Tent and the Jazz Pioneers!

John Barker has been with us for decades–Manager, pilot mechanic, special projects, and friend. Your contributions are funding his restoration of the 1910 Hanriot replica. Yes, it looks like a racing skiff, because that is what it was based upon. Let's keep him in spruce and glue: https://oldrhinebeck.org/annual-appeal/

The HANGAR DANCE is only 8 days away!

We are excited to report that as of now, the weather is calling for a high of 62 and low of 42 that day. As such, a reminder that as a hangar dance, the building will be heated, however, one of the large hangar doors will be open. As you select your vintage finest and plan your outfit for the evening, please keep these logistics in mind.

We are sure you will dance the night away and that alone will keep you warm! We look forward to seeing all of you who are attending and person, and we look forward to entertaining those who are joining us virtually!

We are 11 days away! Do you have your ticket yet?

Dance to the sounds of a 20 piece swing band- local food and drink- and most important- help the Aerodrome raise money for winter and beyond!

There is nothing like this event in the Hudson Valley in November and it’s a great opportunity to have fun before the hustle and bustle of the holidays!

What are you waiting for?

The classic Dutch "Becht" barn has been the landmark on our north end final approach since the beginning. Donations made it possible to purchase the property and restore the structure to preserve it and increase our storage. Since we lost almost half our Air Show, Biplane Ride, and Gift Shop revenue to weather this season, we're relying on your generosity to get us through the winter and keep our many projects moving forward. Any amount helps: https://oldrhinebeck.org/annual-appeal/ Thank you!

Come one come all! Dance the night away to the sounds of THE JAZZ PIONEERS in our Hangar at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome.

Weather forced us to cancel 14 of our 36 airshows this season. That causes a 1/3 loss of our revenue to keep us going as a seasonal, non profit organization. In order to regain some of what we have lost we are throwing a Whiz Bang of a dance on November 18th!

Light snacks by SIMPLY GOURMET will be served and we will have beer, wine, cider and water as well.

Tickets are available at this link for $100 per person: https://fareharbor.com/embeds/book/oldrhinebeck/items/498961/calendar/2023/11/?full-items=yes

Want to support us but can't come? We are offering a VIRTUAL TICKET for $45 - we will send you a live feed link so you can join us from your living room and enjoy the big band sounds as if you were here! They are also available at the link above.

Please SHARE this event with your friends, family, and fans of the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome! See you there-

Trudy and Sir Percy remind you that the Annual Appeal supports all our activities. This off season, we're getting the 1910 Hanriot replica back in service. That means our Pioneer squadron will feature the 1910 Bleriot, 1911 Curtiss D, 1912 Taube and the Hanriot-a Pre-War Air Meet. Help make it a reality at: https://oldrhinebeck.org/annual-appeal/ Thanks from all of us.

Have you bought your tickets yet?

Get yours before we sell out! Dancing to a live big band is like nothing else you’ve done.

Dancing in a hangar near a vintage plane with your friends is even better!

Click the link in bio and go to events to purchase your tickets before they are gone. Proceeds help us to keep moving through the winter after a wet and windy summer season caused us to lose 1/3 of our airshows. Have fun and help us at the same time!
