The addition a second Tri-Motor will provide more opportunities for AirVenture attendees to fly on a vintage airliner. Ford Tri-Motors were the first all-metal airliners in the world. To book your flight during the convention, head on over to the south end of the warbird flightline and look for the Tri-Motor ticket stand. Price is $70 per person. Tickets can be purchased on day of flight at the Tri-Motor building located at the south end of the Warbirds area or avoid lines by purchasing online.
