  • Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Named as Top Adventure Destination

Rhinebeck, New York – January 31, 2017 – The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome has been chosen as one of seven locations in the US and Canada for FlipKey by TripAdvisor’s “Ultimate Adventure Buck List for Travelers.”  The online review recommends, “Not only if you’re in the area, but this place is worth a special trip for the weekend airshows! Besides hangars full of aircraft from before the Lindbergh flight, they have actual World War I aircraft and others that take to the skies! Those pilots are fearless! Check the website for schedules as it is seasonal, but DO NOT MISS this treasure!”  The Bucket List is available on the Aerodrome website: oldrhinebeck.org

“This was a great surprise to us,” said Aerodrome President Mike DiGiacomio, “We’re honored that this was driven by visitor reviews and look forward to educating and entertaining many new friends this season.”  The Aerodrome Airshow season runs Saturdays and Sundays, June 10th through October 22nd.  DiGiacomio adds, “To truly complete the adventure bucket list, rides in a 1929 biplane are available before and after the shows.”

The Village of Red Hook is also featured in the review, “You’ll find that classic ‘Main Street USA’ atmosphere in the small Hudson River town of Red Hook. Stop in for a quiet autumn weekend to pick apples or shop at an authentic farmers’ market. Explore the gardens and tour the historic Montgomery Place during your visit, too.”

The Rhinebeck Aerodrome Museum is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, restoring and flying aircraft of the Pioneer, WWI, and Golden Ages of aviation.  The Museum is open weekdays and weekends May through October, with Saturday and Sunday Airshows from the middle of June to late October.
