    • ATL Air Show says:

      Thanks for the feedback – we did talk with the Air Boss team about lowering the sound because of the loud echo across the stadium. We’ll definitely keep that in mind for tomorrow and future shows!

  1. Pam says:

    Are advanced reservations required for a Huey ride or can you make them in person? We plan on coming Sunday and would like to go up if possible. How much does it cost per person?

    • ATL Air Show says:

      Rides start at $85 for a Huey helicopter ride to $425 for a Cobra or B-25 Bomber. If they have availability on the day of the show, they may take reservations, but we recommend booking in advance if possible.

  2. Chad McCurley says:

    With Atlanta motor speedway announcing they will take in people evacuating from the hurricane. How will that impact the show Saturday and Sunday?

    • ATL Air Show says:

      Hopefully minimally – by that time, the forecast is looking pretty clear for the weekend. Obviously we will keep a close eye on the situation and let everyone know should anything change, but as of now, the show is still on with no issues.

  3. Melanie says:

    Last year you were allowed to bring in a bottle of unopened water to the event. Will you be able to do this again?

  4. beth says:

    What are the gate hours for premium turn one rv parking spots? What is the latest time can we arrive on Friday? Also are golf carts allowed in this area?

  5. Lt Col says:

    Im an air guard member and will be working on base the weekend of the show. My wife has a dependent ID, can she and my daughter get the military discount with her ID??

  6. Robin says:

    My husband is handicapped. Can I reserve a certain seat? If not, are there elevators available to get to the location we need?

    Thank you

      Hi Robin, there are elevators and ramps up into the stadium as well as handicap seating. The handicap seating is first-come, first-serve in the grandstand seating, but there’s plenty available for all our guests.

  7. George Thomas says:

    What are the gate hours for us to come/go in our motorhome if we purchased a Turn One Premium View campsite? Specifically, what is the latest time we can arrive on Friday with our motorhome? I think I saw that the gate opens at 12:00, is that correct?

    • ATL Air Show says:

      VIP Skybox is the only area that guarantees shade for the entire duration of the show. It all depends on the time of day and where the sun is. Your best chance for shade is the top row of general or preferred seating.

  8. Jessica Noblit says:

    Are campfires allowed? We have reserved a camping spot in the friends and family section. How are spits assigned, first come first serve?

    • ATL Air Show says:

      Hey Jessica, sorry for the delay in response – we were confirming the answers to your camping questions with the site. YES, campfires are allowed. The rules specifically state: “Campfires – Please remember all fires must be confined to a grill, firepit, or barrel.
