The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors has designated Saturday, April 29 as Aviation Day in Humboldt County. 

In recognition of Aviation Day, the Humboldt County Department of Aviation is excited welcome the community to celebrate all things aviation at the Murray Field Airport (KEKA) on Saturday, April 29. 

The event, known as Airport Day, will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Murray Field Airport, located at Airport Road in Eureka.

This free, all-ages event is being hosted in partnership with Cal Poly Humboldt’s Aviation Club who has invited members of the aviation community to fly in and exhibit their planes. Event attendees will have the opportunity to view a static display of single engine private aircraft, a historic WWII era aircraft, a US Coast Guard-Sector Humboldt Bay helicopter, a Life Flight aircraft, and many others. Additionally, attendees will be able to meet local pilots, check out model aircraft presented by Humboldt Aero Modelers, and participate in other fun activities.

This event is weather dependent. For more information about Airport Day, please visit the event website or email aviation@humboldt.edu. If you own a plane and would like to display it at Airport Day, please email Aviation Club advisor and Computer Science professor David Marshall at david.marshall@humboldt.edu.

Cal Poly Humboldt’s Aviation Club was established in 2020 and aims to reduce barriers for students interested in aviation. For more information about the club, visit the Cal Poly Aviation Club website.
