If you wish to have the Wright Brothers National Memorial entrance fee waived, you must request an Academic Fee Waiver from the Outer Banks Group Fee Manager at least four weeks in advance of your scheduled visit. If approved, you will receive an approval letter from the Fee Manager. The letter must be presented at the park entrance station upon arrival at the site. If you do not have an approval letter with you when you arrive at the site, you will be charged the applicable entrance fees.
How to Apply for an Academic Fee Waiver
