Aviation Day 2022 is going to be held on April 9th, 2022 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. It is held at the Purdue University Airport with activities held throughout the airport including Niswonger, the Terminal, and Hangar buildings. Aviation Day 2022 is on track to be our largest event since 1911. Backed by our Presenting Sponsor Envoy Air the entire student team behind the event is eager to present the final product to the public. This year's theme is "Aviation Reunited." Welcoming everyone back to our event after a 2 year hiatus.

Guests can expect to enjoy a wide variety of aircraft displays from general aviation, military, historical, airlines, and more. Historical exhibits and guest speakers will be on site during the event to give the public a look at the history of aviation and how Purdue has influenced the past, present, and future of the aviation industry. The younger generation of aspiring aviators will enjoy an entire area dedicated to youth and kids activities. Returning to Aviation Day this year is the fly-in breakfast that will be available before the main event to general aviation pilots who fly their aircraft into the event. Purdue Aviation Day has something for everyone, the students at Purdue Aviation Technology work hard all year long to ensure that everyone who visits the Purdue Airport will enjoy a day full of aviation fun.
