Aviation Education Resource Centers (AERC)

FAA Aviation Education Resource Centers (AERCs) were originally established at locations such as colleges, universities, museums, and foundations to provide a focal point for resources including aviation education programs, publications, software and video tapes. Designed for students, teachers and researchers, the materials in the AERCs enhanced aviation education and information programs.

Note: Unfortunately budget cuts and other changes in support to the program means that many if not all of these sites may no longer be functioning, or may have taken on a new mission related to aviation education. Please let us know of any changes that should be published here.
