Built in 1917, the hangar at Wingfoot Lake is the oldest airship facility and one of the oldest active aircraft bases in the world. In addition to a maintenance and construction facility for Goodyear's blimp fleet, it is currently the home to Goodyear's new semi-rigid Zeppelin airship, Wingfoot Three. Based on its contributions to Lighter-Than-Air, aviation in general and military significance during WWI & WWII, the Wingfoot Lake Hangar was awarded an Ohio historical marker in 2018.
We regret we are unable to accommodate individual public tours. Tours of Wingfoot Lake are conducted on a pre-scheduled basis for organized groups such as schools, scouts and similar educational entities.
The Wingfoot Lake base in Suffield, Ohio is near Akron, Ohio, home to the world headquarters for The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.
