Murfreesboro Airport is hosting an Airport STEAM Festival event Saturday, Oct. 21! The Airport invites the public to engage STEAM from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. to learn how airplanes fly and what the Murfreesboro Airport does for the surrounding community.

The list of participants in the Murfreesboro Airport STEAM Festival event include:

  • The 101st Airborne Division: CH-47 (Chinook) and AH-64 (Apache)
  • TN Army National Guard: UH-60 (Blackhawk)
  • NewsChannel 5 Sky 5: See a news chopper and check out the aerial camera used in daily broadcasts
  • Civil Air Patrol
  • The Veterans of Foreign Wars
  • Murfreesboro City Police: Law Enforcement Technology
  • Murfreesboro City Fire: Ladder 6 and Live Fire Extinguisher Training
  • Murfreesboro Aviation: Soviet Yakovlev Fighter Trainer & Flight Experience Opportunities
  • Middle Tennessee State University: jet and piston engines on display to see all the inner workings of the engine and show off the aircraft that train future airline pilots and drone operators
  • Vanderbilt LifeFlight and Ascension AirEvac: see one of their active service medical evac helicopters
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator: fly the same plane you just sat in right out of MBT

This is an excellent opportunity for scout members to earn their Aviation Badge!

Thanks to our sponsors, the airport is able to offer hotdogs, chips, and bottled water to all who participate in the educational opportunities (while supplies last).
