Save the Date for the Aviation Heritage Fair, Which Moves to Spring

Posted Sep. 16, 2011

The Aviation Heritage Fair held at the Kent State University Airport in Stow, Ohio, will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2012. Normally a fall event, the Aviation Heritage Fair has been moved to spring to coincide with two other events presented by Kent State’s College of Technology and its Aeronautics Program. The new spring date allows Kent State alumni who will be attending the Richard Schwabe Golf Outing on April 20, 2012, and the Vision 21 Banquet on April 21, 2012, to join community members to enjoy an all-day event of aviation activities, a pancake breakfast, airplane rides, music and entertainment, as well as meet aviation scholars, enthusiasts and industry professionals.

A favorite Northeast Ohio event, the Aviation Heritage Fair features activities for both the flight enthusiast and casual fan. Event admission and parking are free. There is a cost for airplane rides.

The fair, which was conceived by a Kent State student aviation club, has been through several iterations over the years. It is now run by the faculty, staff and students of the university’s Aeronautics Program with help from the Stow-Munroe Falls Kiwanis Club.
