On May 5 and 6, 2012, step back in time to the Golden Age of Aviation as the William Fitts Ryan Visitor Center reopens. It is better known as Floyd Bennet Field the countries first municipal airport. It is past Kings Plaza and the Belt Parkway.
Live music will kick off the festivities at noon on Saturday with the ribbon cutting ceremony beginning at 12:30 P.M. Contests, swing dancing and children’s activities will take place over the weekend. The Rockaway Arts Alliance will conduct children’s activities on both days in the new visitor center. A full scale replica of Wiley Post’s Lockheed Vega aircraft the “Winnie Mae” will be christened as well. He flew around the world twice. In the newly restored center, visitors can view newsreels from the airfield’s heyday via a touch screen and enjoy historic exhibits. Children can “fly” a mini-airplane and test their paper airplane. The Q 35 bus goes there and it is the stop after the Toys- R-US stop. It runs down Flatbush Avenue and stops by the college, Kings Highway, Ave S and more stops.
