If you have a love of all things aviation, and you've passed that passion on to your kids, this is an event to share with each other!

The Sioux Falls Airshow Discover Aviation Day is coming up on Thursday, August 5, from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Maverick Air Center, 4201 North Maverick Place in Sioux Falls.

This event is a place where you'll discover how important S.T.E.M. subjects are in the aviation field. As we have witnessed recently, more and more people will be flying. Even flying beyond our atmosphere. There is always something new coming in the aviation world.
