> Transportation: Airline flights into Dayton International Airport are convenient (about 30 minutes from the Hope Hotel).  The Hope Hotel has NO shuttle to and from the airport.  However, but if you can get a cheaper or more direct flight into Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, distance is about 75 minutes south of Dayton.  Dayton is a small city and easy to get around.  We recommend you rent a car with friends. Taxis are expensive; Uber or Lyft may be a cheaper option.

> Security:  If you or your guest does not have a retired military ID, we will need to make special arrangements in advance to access the base.  Please let us know you don't have your own access to the base NLT 1 Aug 2018.

> Any reason to stay longer in Dayton? The Hope Hotel will honor the

> group rate for three days before and after the reunion.  Dayton is the

> center of the National Aviation Heritage Area,

> www.aviationheritagearea.org which has many interesting aviation

> heritage sites, related to the Wright Brothers.  Many people tour the

> National Museum of the US Air Force, www.nationalmuseum.af.mil for 2-3

> days.  The museum includes a most amazing 19 acres of Air Force

> history, and provides free motorized carts on a first-come, first
