Abstract Special events involving aviation activities or aircraft are common at airports across the United States. These events are designed to (1) enhance public awareness of the airport; (2) stimulate interest in and growth of the airport and aviation; (3) foster community support; (4) provide community benefits; and (5) possibly generate revenue for the airport or community/ charitable organization. Aeronautical special events include air shows, fly-ins, airport open houses (if aircraft are on display), aircraft static display, EAA Young Eagles or Eagle Flight events, or community appreciation events involving aircraft. Nonaeronautical events, such as car shows, 5K or 10K runs, concerts, terminal dedications, or pancake breakfasts with no fly-in component, have similar requirements for planning and organizing; however, only aeronautical events and the unique considerations involved are addressed in this report. Although these events can provide tremendous benefits for the airport and the local community, they require extensive planning, frequently commencing a year or more in advance of the event.
