Interested in aviation as a hobby or a career? Visit displays from our partners and learn about job opportunities and how we all work together to make the Airport run. You can even enter to win a free discovery flight at local flight school National Flight Simulator.

“On National Aviation Day, we celebrate our industry’s history and share the exciting careers you can find in the world of aviation,” said Airport Director Ted Kitchens, A.A.E. “We are excited to come together once again to show the community what we do here at MHT.”

National Aviation Day was first established in 1939 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in honor of Orville Wright’s birthday.
