It has been a long road but the construction of the FedEx Aeronautics Academic Center is complete! We invite you to join us for an Open House, 5-6 p.m., Friday, September 6. Tour our new building at 4020 Kent Rd, Stow, Ohio (at the Kent State University Airport) and meet the people who made it all possible.Refreshments will be served.
What began as a vision to enhance the flight technology training experience and match aesthetics with the caliber of education, the FedEx Aeronautics Academic Center has become much more. Kent State is now inline to be a major contributor to the world’s pilot shortage. After two decades of teaching in trailers at the KSU Airport, Kent State’s College of Aeronautics and Engineering’s FedEx Academic Center extends its College to a second building to better accommodate students and help meet the demand for pilots. This is the second new building for the College within a 5-year span.
The FedEx, Kent State partnership made this 17,800-square-foot building possible, accommodating teaching and office space while housing two Alsim Flight Simulators. The open house is an opportunity for the Kent State community to celebrate this milestone. We hope you can attend!
The College of Aeronautics and Engineering Alumni and Friends Dinner begins at 6 p.m., with remarks at 6:30 p.m., and allows those who are closest to the college to reflect on the past year’s events and look to the future. Please watch for a registration link and more event information soon.
