Welcome to Wright “B” Flyer

As of 06/30/2020 the Wright “B” Flyer, Inc. museum and hangar will remain closed for the foreseeable future due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.  As has always been the case, the safety of our visitors and volunteer staff are of the utmost importance to us at the Wright “B” Flyer, Inc.  And, although we would really like to reopen our facility to the general public, we do not believe that we can assure the safety of either visitors or staff from the dangers of the coronavirus.  Also, orientation flights in the Wright-B-Flyer lookalike are not possible at this time because the seat separation distance is less than 6 feet.  Stay safe, stay healthy. 


For a generation, Wright “B” Flyer Inc. has celebrated the legacy of the Wright brothers in Dayton, Ohio by flying and displaying a modern lookalike of their first production airplane—the Model B.  Now, we’re building a new one to ensure our mission continues for the next generation. And we’ll complete it in the factory that produced the original Wright B Flyers more than a century ago.

Wilbur and Orville Wright built America’s first airplane factory in Dayton in 1910. The Model B was its first product. Our plane, nicknamed the “Brown Bird,” is a Model B lookalike built to modern standards with modern materials and components. Our new airplane will also be a modern lookalike.

Learn how you can help us build our new airplane. Or visit us at Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport (KMGY) Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, 9am-2:30pm, Admission is free!
