May 19, 2017 – Email notification form for AAviationDay 2017:

We have put together an email form to notify you when AAviationDay tickets are available. This will likely take place in the coming weeks. Unlike last year, we plan on providing a specific date and time for ticket openings a few days in advance so keep watch on this page, your inbox (if you signed up for the form), and our social media platforms. After last year’s rapid sell out, we plan to leave plenty of leeway to reserve tickets for an event of your choosing.

May 3, 2017 – An update on AAviationDay 2017 planning:

You won’t want to miss this! Our plans are well underway for another exciting opportunity to celebrate National Aviation Day. This year, we’ll celebrate again with our American Airlines colleagues on Friday, Aug. 18. And yes, the anticipation is killing us, too. We are certainly preserving many aspects from last year – all those cool, behind-the-scenes opportunities you said were key components of the day. But we’re also looking to add in a few extras, and we know you won’t want to miss out. Once we’ve pinned down the details and event locations, our aim is to open up registration in mid-to late May. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the specific date and time of when we open up registration. Tickets will go fast! Last year, most locations were sold out in less than 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, if you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to send us a Facebook message or Twitter direct message. The email will launch with the opening of ticket registration.  

We are thrilled to announce that AAviationDay will take place on Friday, August 18, 2017.

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the most up-to-date information regarding this year’s event.
