Education / Tours

The Airport Authority loves to partner with local educators to share the wonder of flight with others. 
You will find many useful resources on this page to help develop your aviation curriculum, including a variety of age appropriate activities and an extensive aviation reading list – broken down by age group – that will compliment any lesson plan.

To take your lesson plans to A Whole New Altitude, contact us to arrange a tour of the airport. 


Due to COVID-19 we have temporarily suspended tours of all Airport Authority work stations and buildings. The status of Airport tours will be reavaluated as we continue to navigate through COVID-19. We appreciate your understanding!
