Education Takes Flight - Local children get a once-in-a-lifetime experience to peek behind the scenes of the Audi Stuart Airshow on Friday November 1, 2019 as we inspire the future of Aviation.

STUART, Fl. (Oct. 10, 2019) - On Friday November 1, the Audi Stuart Air Show takes the opportunity to give back to the wonderful children in our community by hosting over 700 children at Witham Field. Children from JD Parker Elementary, YMCA, All about Achieving, Oak Hammock and the Treasure Coast Air Force JROTC.

A variety of Military and Civilian aircraft will take part in the educational portion of this event and the students will spend time with each aircraft to learn what makes them unique. They will ask questions they prepare ahead of time, so we can quench their curiosity about aviation! Aircraft include, C130 Hurricane Hunters, F-16 Viper Demo Team / P-51 (2) aircraft (Heritage Flight Team), USAF A.C.E. Display, Dream Big Entertainment, USASOC Black Daggers, US Navy "Leap Frogs", F4U / T6II (Legacy Flight Team) and much more!


Our future aviators will also be able to enjoy our brand new STEAM World. Activities that the students will get to enjoy include, 3D Printing, airplane models, Treasure Coast Wildlife, LEGOs, drones, and aviation related activities.


This year we will have the Air Force Special Ops Air Command Experience (A.C.E) Display as a part of this event. This is an immersive experience showcasing what it takes to make it in the Air Force Special Operations. At noon they will be among the very first to witness this year's Audi Stuart Air Show, as the performers practice their flights for the Show.


At the Audi Stuart Air Show it is our main mission to: Celebrate Aviation - honoring its past and inspiring its future. The Board of Directors believes there is no better way to inspire the future than by challenging the curious minds of our children. We can't wait to watch their imagination run wild as they learn about the wonderful world of aviation!!!
