(Indianapolis, Ind.) – With just a couple clicks of the mouse, your admission to the summer’s best family-friendly charity event will be guaranteed!

Tickets to the 2009 Indianapolis Air Show at Mt. Comfort Airport (MQJ), featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, are now available at the event’s website, Scheduled for June 5, 6 and 7, the IAS will be taking place much earlier in the summer than previous years.

If you buy your tickets online before the event, you’ll get even more than the peace of mind that comes with getting something done early – you’ll get a significant discount!

General admission tickets online are $17 each for adults and $8 for children ages 6 to 12 (there is no charge for children under age 6). That’s a savings of $3 and $2, respectively – and a great reason to visit as soon as possible.

It’s important to note that the IAS, which benefits local children’s charities, did not raise its ticket prices this year, hoping to keep it as affordable as possible for families all over the country. In addition, active duty members of the U.S. military can get into the event for free by showing their military ID.

“The Indianapolis Air Show is a great option for anyone who’s looking for something fun and economical to do this summer,” said Tom McCord, IAS general manager. “Within driving distance of much of the U.S., you can’t beat the entertainment you’ll see soaring overhead and the interactive events taking place on the field.”

To access the advance ticketing area, go to and click on the “Buy Tickets” link at the top right of the homepage. Full instructions are available there. Advance Air Show tickets are scanned and redeemed at admission gates.

Joining the Navy’s highly-regarded flight demonstration team, the Blue Angels, in the IAS line-up are the U.S. Army Golden Knights, the U.S. Marines MV-22 Osprey and additional military aircraft.

Also just confirmed is the American Icon Tour – the first-ever visit by this group of P-51 Mustangs to Central Indiana. More details on this exciting new addition to the Air Show, including how to purchase rides, will be released soon.

Matt Chapman, sponsored by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and Lucas Oil’s Mike Wiskus will be bringing their high-flying skills to the event, as well.

Be sure to check out the IAS website,, for the latest information on what you can expect at this year’s Air Show.

Net proceeds from the Indianapolis Air Show go to the Central Indiana Community Foundation. The IAS has donated more than $1.3 million through CICF to children’s charities since the show’s inception in 1997.
