The 2017 United Airlines-SIU Aviation Career Day was a huge success.  Thank you to all the students who attended.  We hope to see you at SIU soon!

SIU Aviation Career Days are programs designed to give future aviation students a first-hand look at both the aviation industry and at SIU aviation.  Most career days include a free flight to the SIU campus from either Chicago or St. Louis as well as an up-close view of what a career in aviation might look like.

The 2018 United Airlines-SIU Aviation Career Day has not been determined.  Check back often for updates.

United Airlines Aviation Career Day

This event is designed for high school and community college students in the Chicago area who are interested in aviation.  The event begins at 6 A.M. with check-in at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago for a flight to Southern Illinois Airport at Carbondale-Murphysboro, Illinois.  The selected students will be flown to Carbondale to tour SIU's aviation facilities, the main SIU campus, the SIU Student Center, and Recreation Center.  Students will be flown back to Chicago by around 5:30 P.M. the same day.
