This year’s event, Celebrating Women in Aviation, will take place on Sunday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Entry and parking for the open house are free to the public. Dozens of airplanes, from vintage models to business jets and helicopters, will be on display, including a Lockheed C-130J. There also will be displays of classic cars and the Hayward Fire and Police departments will be on hand with emergency response vehicles.

Free airplane rides are available for kids between the ages of eight and 17 courtesy of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles Program. Registration for rides is required and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis starting Sunday, Sept. 15, at 1 a.m. Visit the Young Eagles Program website for more information.

Also featured this year are low-cost airplane rides for adults and children who were otherwise unable to secure a free ride form the Young Eagles, plus music from local DJs, great food, a climbing wall and many other family friendly attractions.
