WWII Air, Sea & Land Festival

2018

The National WWII Museum, the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, and the Commemorative Air Force extend a sincere thank you to the sponsors and patrons who supported the 2018 WWII Air, Sea & Land Festival at New Orleans Lakefront Airport.

We had a beautiful weekend with fantastic weather, and more importantly a safe and fun show. The event drew more than 16,000 attendees—including 3,800 schoolchildren on Free Student Friday.

Great response! The event is full. Please understand that airshows are more than just opportunities to jump. They are controlled by the FAA and present specific and sometimes difficult challenges. If you are new to the team (essentially an unknown jumper to us) you may be restricted in your ability participate. ALL jumpers wishing to participate must receive a stamp of approval from RCPT-USA Safety and Training and Jumpmaster team. Furthermore, we will try and get as many qualified jumpers in the air as possible. This means that not all jumpers will jump every day. We ill try and work this out so you know exactly what the manifest is so you can plan accordingly. Please register on the wait list and we will fill openings for this event from this list first. Finally, we only have limited team hotel space but Dave Krasner is local and would be able to house over-flow members not able to stay at the hotel.
