The Wright Flyer Replica is very well maintained. It is directly next to the airport's cell phone lot, so no airport parking fees!

Worth the two minute trip off Rt 77. One can see it by entering the Canton Akron Airport passenger drop off area. Amazing to think this thing started the air travel we have today! And after seeing this. go to the Fannie May chocolate store two minutes away...

Wright Flyer Replica

A beautiful replica of the Wright Flyer is on display in the parking area of the Akron-Canton Airport. I believe it was built by a local welding ad fabrication shop.

[Bryan, 03/21/2013]

This version of the world's first airplane is all-metal, while the original was mostly fabric. It was dedicated on December 17, 2003, the centennial of the world's first airplane flight.
