Silent Auction

AAAE's Ninth Annual Silent Auction, an ever popular event at the conference, will run the full three days of the show, giving delegates multiple opportunities to bid on valuable items while supporting the funding of scholarships.

Sunday, May 7 - 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 
Monday, May 8 - 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. 
Tuesday, May 9 - 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

All bids are final as of 1:00 p.m. Tuesday, May 9

AAAE's Foundation, which receives proceeds from the auction as well as contributions from chapters, staff and corporate donors, awards financial grants to students enrolled full time in aviation programs at accredited U.S. colleges and universities. Since 1989, the Foundation has awarded nearly $4.25 million to more than 2,700 individuals. AAAE financially supports the scholarship program, which allows all contributions to go directly to student scholarships.
