Discounted Denton Airshow tickets for UNT employees, students

Denton Airshow

Sometimes Dad really prefers something other than a tie for Father’s Day and the Denton Airshow is a great opportunity to impress him. War birds and cool aerobatics will make you the favorite for years to come. Bring dad and the family to the Denton Enterprise Airport 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. June 18 to enjoy the Denton Airshow.

“The Denton Airshow’s success is a direct result of the development and growth of the Denton Enterprise Airport,” says Quentin Hix, director of aviation for the city of Denton. “The addition of a control tower in 2004 and expanding the runway to 7,000 feet in 2011 allow more appearances by military jets such as the F-16s. The presence and variety of planes at the air show allow the Denton Enterprise Airport to be a key partner in preserving the history of aviation.”

While there is a lot to see and do at the Denton Airshow, the performer schedule is very tight and on time. To catch the excitement of the show, be sure to be inside the gate at least by 10 a.m. These are the highlights you don’t want to miss:

  • Introduce the kids to a real pilot! Take the kiddos to meet the pilots at the Pilots Tent.  Visit with them, take pictures and get autographs.
  • The National Anthem with The Texas Twisters’ Flyby is at 11:07 a.m. This moment will captivate you so bring your camera for awesome pictures of this very patriotic moment.

Tickets

Tickets are $10 for adults and kids under age 6 are free.  Discounted tickets are available to UNT employees and students at a discounted rate of $6 with Promo Code UNT16. Buy online at Denton.schultzairshow.com and DiscoverDenton.com or at the gate the day of the event. Follow Denton Airshow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for contest giveaways, special packages and up to date information before and during the air show.

Parking

Only VIP and handicap parking will be available at the Denton Enterprise Airport during the Denton Airshow. Users of these airport parking lots must have parking passes to access Airport Road to the Denton Enterprise Airport.

All public parking will be located at UNT's Apogee Stadium and Fouts Field off of I-35W, exit North Texas Boulevard. The Denton Airshow is providing bus transportation to and from the Airport starting at 8:30 a.m. for general air show admission on Saturday, June 18.
