  • About the event

    Wright Brothers Day is celebrated every December 17th.The FFS plans an annual celebration at the Wright Brothers National Memorial on December 17th mandated by their bylaws to memorialize the work of the Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk, NC. Every year members, sponsors and volunteers work to commemorate the legacy of Orville and Wilbur Wright. 

    The FFS invites the world to celebrate with us in person and online. Every year since 1966 a new honoree is inducted into the Paul E Garber Shrine on the 17th. 

    First Flight Society focuses on sharing the importance of aviation history and works to expand youth aviation education throughout the world.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Sponsorship opportunities are now available for the 2022 Wright Brothers Day Celebration. The event will be held on Friday, December 17th, 2022 at Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, NC.

    Organizations from the aviation community and area businesses sponsor and underwrite many First Flight Society activities and programs throughout the year, especially the December 17th anniversary celebration.  

    This event attracts 100s of people during the offseason to the historic Outer Banks of North Carolina.

    We cannot help others experience this important story without you. Your support keeps the inspiration, adventure and exploring spirit alive for the next generation of aviation pioneers

    Available sponsorship levels range from $1,000 to the $10,000 level. Sponsor packages are based on the sponsor level. Sponsors are featured in our emails, press releases, advertising and on the First Flight Society, National Aviation Day, and Wright Brothers Day event websites.

    We welcome you to join one of aviation’s oldest and finest organizations. The FFS was founded in 1927. This non profit organization celebrates the accomplishments of the Wright Brothers and helps educate the world about aviation! Join us in our mission and help support The Paul E Garber Shrine, Aviation Education, Scholarships and the annual December 17th Celebration in Kitty Hawk, NC.

    Without the First Flight Society there would not be a Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. The Kill Devil Hills Memorial Association, later named First Flight Society, began as a group of local businessmen who successfully petitioned the US Congress to fund and build a monument to the Wright Brothers' 1903 achievement.
