Last year, the date for air show was switched to April to coincide with an alumni event at the university, but since the Vision 21 Banquet (held by the university's college of technology) was recently canceled, the date for the heritage fair has been switched back to September, according to Media Relations Director Emily Vincent.
"Other factors also contributed to moving the fair back to September, including that the Yankee Air Force Museum doesn't open until May, so we wouldn't be able to pay for a historical aircraft for the event," Vincent added.
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.
It's an all-day event of aviation activities with a pancake breakfast, airplane rides, music and entertainment, as well as an opportunity to meet aviation scholars, enthusiasts and industry professionals.
The event is run by the faculty, staff and students of the university’s Aeronautics Program with help from the Stow-Munroe Falls Kiwanis Club.
