“Passport to Elegance” Jet Center Party

Thursday, July 22, 2021

Get ready to swing back to the age of glamour, opulence, and decadence at our Great Gatsby themed luxury bash held in the 18,000 square foot hangar of the Lynx Jet Center at Allegheny County Airport.

Make an entrance and arrive in style donning your flapper dresses and bow ties to party amidst rare and exotic vintage cars and airplanes in an atmosphere of pure luxury and fanfare. A top-shelf open bar and a top-notch menu will have everyone talking. Don’t miss the rest of the surprises in store for our guests.

This spectacular event is the highlight of our Race Week parties. It is a fundraiser for our charity partners. Price is $375 per person.

2019 PVGP Passport to Elegance Jet Center Party

“I love the beauty of vintage cars, especially ones from the ’50s and ’60; and this event easily rivals the one out in California’s Monterey Bay.” –  BOBBY RAHAL, Indianapolis 500 winning race driver and special guest at the inaugural Passport to Elegance party.

Honda Aircraft Tours

The Honda Aircraft Company will have a new jet on display. Come get a look at how Honda has recreated the business jet from the ground up with a truly clean sheet design. By mounting engines over the wing, designing Natural Laminar Flow for the wing and fuselage, and applying other innovations, the HondaJet outperforms all other aircraft in its class.

Single Ticket: $375
