Skydiving demonstrations, flag jumps, smoke jumps, and tandem skydives for the interested parties of the audience can all be a part of your show or event! These activities always draw a crowd of spectators and participants alike. This is a great way to add a lot of sizzle to your event at relatively low cost.

Soaring demonstrations and rides are also a big hit at airshows. We have a 2 place Blanik L-13 glider which is perfect for this type of work. Being fully aerobatic and a great trainer the Blanik is perfect for demonstrations as well as rides where the rider gets to do some of the flying. All of our glider pilots are glider instructors with thousands of hours of flight experience. Glider rides are suited for all ages and make many memories that will never be forgotten. Make this part of your next airshow!

Barron Aviation also has aircraft available for static display. We have several Cessna 195's, two Beechcraft 18's, a Cessna LC-126 in "Artic Rescue" configuration and a Cessna 170B on the way. Specializing in classic aircraft custom rebuilds, structural repair and restoration is the business of Barron Aviation's Perry Missouri location. Because of this we have access to many more aircraft and services. If there is something specific you want give us a call.
