The Aviation Club at NYU provides a rich, hands-on learning experience covering the broad spectrum of activities that take place in the aviation industry. We focus on the developments in the aviation industry by way of engineering, business, and law. We engage students with high-level corporate and banking guest speakers, aerospace site visits, and opportunities to network in and around New York City.

Our club was founded with the backing of The Wings Club, a New York-based association of aviation industry professionals.

Our club is well recognized by the NYU and New York City community: We were nominated as “Club of the Month” in December 2015 by the NYU Center for Student Activities, Leadership, and Service (CSALS).  We were the recipient of NYU President’s Service Award in the spring of 2016.  We were featured on CSALS Sunday Spotlight in April 2017 (see post here).
