Valiant Air Command and Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex have partnered to offer a special ticket package in celebration of the 36th Annual TiCo Warbird AirShow, March 22-24, 2013. The Ultimate Aviation Combo package includes a one day admission to the TiCo Warbird AirShow and a one day admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex valid March 22-24, 2013.
“The Ultimate Aviation Combo package provides the public with an opportunity to share their pride for two of mankind’s greatest achievements in aviation – precision wartime flying and aerial maneuvers at the TiCo Warbird AirShow and a journey through more than 50 years of America’s greatest space adventures at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex,” said Bill Moore, chief operating officer of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
Showcasing the pride and precision of America’s Warbirds, the 36th Annual TiCo Warbird AirShow is a celebration of America’s fighter jets from the past and present. Highlights of this year’s show include an air performance by the United States Air Force’s Thunderbirds – a first-ever appearance at the show – and a B-17 Flying Fortress; a great bomber made famous throughout the WWII European Theater. In addition to the exciting air performances, guests can enjoy more than 70 vintage aircrafts on display, exhibits, musical entertainment and specialty vendors.
“Valiant Air Command is excited to partner for the first time with Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex to provide an extraordinary weekend of flight adventures,” adds Colonel Terry Yon, public relations officer of Valiant Air Command.

The Valiant Air Command was started by a group of twelve individuals in 1977. It was formed to perpetuate the history and culture of military aviation, to encourage the gathering of men and women in camaraderie, research and warbird restoration, to serve as an educational tool for young and old alike and to assure that the memory of all those who gave their lives in service to their country shall not perish. The Valiant Air Command is a tax-exempt, 501c3, not for profit, educational Museum that presently has ten acres of property at the Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville, Florida. The museum displays, maintains and restores all types of aircraft that were indigenous to the world's military Air Forces from WWI to the present. The facilities consist of three exhibit hangars and two separate museum areas with some 35-40 vintage warbirds on display at any time.
The cost of the museum is $18 for adults and $5 for children up to age 12. Special rates for tour groups and for special events such as birthdays, meeting, wedding, parties, are available. For more information, www.vacwarbirds.org.
