For the first time at an Offutt Open House and Airshow there is an App for your smart phone. Released JIT (Just In Time) for the Defenders of Freedom Open House, the App contains all of the information available on our website, plus a whole lot more.
Viewable on the App are lists of the various attractions that will be present at the Open House. View a comprehensive list of the 14 different performers that will take to the air and wow the crowd with their bewildering aerobatics. Find out which military aircraft, both past and present, will be available to view, touch, and tour with the growing list of statics. Discover who amongst the 34+ different groups and agencies that will be exhibiting at this year’s Open House you’d like to visit and learn more about.
Do you like to plan every moment of your day? Decide what lunch will look like before stepping on to our Open House grounds. With 15 different food vendors serving a wide range of traditional and non-traditional Open House fare, there is something for everyone.
And how are you going to get to the Open House? Follow the directions to our front gate for on base parking after our gates open up at 8:00 a.m., or click on one of the pins in the App to be taken to our off base shuttle-served parking lots at Bellevue East, Bellevue West, Bellevue University, or the Southroads Technology Center. These shuttles are free to use start running at 8:45. If you allow, the App will notify you when one of the lost fills up, this way you can redirect to a shuttle lot with space.
Speaking of notifications, Opt-In and the we will send you notifications for when the Thunderbirds take to the Air, the SAC Museum begins their science demonstrations, the Air Force Honor Guard team begins their ground game, and many more events.
Maps will show biker’s how to get to the Bike-N-Park lot, as well as guide visitors to their favorite locations on the Open House grounds. And let’s not forget the kids! See a list of the activities available for all day fun in the Kid’s Zone!
Last, but certainly not least, see who our Open House sponsors are. These are the companies that make the Open House and Airshow a must-see event! Thank you.
All of this in version 1! Next year’s version is sure to include even more.
