Each year the Aviation Institute holds four major events for the students and the community. In April, the annual Honors Convocation is held to recognize our students for their accomplishments and to award our annual scholarships. During the summer, the UNOAI hosts the Golf Classic to raise money for student scholarships. Early each fall semester the Aviation Information Fair is held to introduce our new and returning students to campus resources, flight providers, and community aviation partners. Finally our Durham Lecture occurs every year in the fall and a member of the aviation community is awarded the William F. Shea Award.
