Welcome to Wright “B” Flyer

We strive 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.


Come Visit Us

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!
