Purdue University Aviation and Transportation Technology has been a global leader in aviation education since the 1930's. In fact, Purdue University Airport was the first university-owned airport in the United States. In 1930, David Ross donated a tract of land to be used as an aeronautical education and re...search facility at Purdue University. The world has changed since the 1930's; Purdue Aviation continues on the leading edge of research and education in the aviation and aerospace industry. We're excited to share some of the things we think make Purdue Aviation special. The first in our new series of videos features the Cirrus SR20 aircraft in our fleet. We have 16 of these beautiful airplanes, and students in the flight major spend many hours flying them. Come and see!
