Guest Services – Guest Services is one of the most important positions at the Airshow! We have numerous opportunities to host or serve in various Airshow venues. Some serving areas require volunteers to be 19 years or older. ServingItRight and/or FoodSafe certifications are an asset.
Onsite Operations – These positions help keep the show running smoothly and can include a variety of tasks.
Patron Safety – Patron Safety volunteers operate alongside local police and security personnel to keep our show and guests safe. This includes a variety of duties across the event grounds. Volunteers for this crew must be 18 years or older.
Setup & Takedown – Much of the most critical work to make the Airshow possible happens long before our planes take to the sky. From June through end of August, many preparations are made to ready the Airport for the Airshow and then restore it again, including:
- Painting & Construction projects
- Equipment & Facility repairs
- Plumbing & Electrical preparations
