Airport Day

CHANDLER, Ariz. – Chandler Municipal Airport (CHD) is excited to announce the return of its community open house, Airport Day, on Saturday, Jan. 20, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event will bring together aviation enthusiasts and the public in celebration of the Airport’s 75th anniversary at its current location near McQueen and Germann roads. 

Airport Day gives CHD staff the opportunity to proudly showcase their place of work — which also happens to serve as the 16th busiest general aviation airport in the nation. 

“We're approaching a century of aviation in Chandler, and we are in our 75th year of aviation at this location, and that's a milestone any airport needs to celebrate,” said Airport Manager Ryan Reeves, who has overseen airport operations in Chandler for more than four years. 

During the free event, attendees can enjoy a wide variety of static aircraft and helicopter displays up close. “We will showcase every era of flight, from the days of biplanes to rotary aircraft to modern executive jets and everything in between,” said Reeves. “There will be old military planes, fixed wing aerobatic planes, and a collection of experimental aircraft that were built and took their first flights here.”

There will be opportunities for attendees to take rides in some aircraft during Airport Day, and both Chandler Fire and Police departments will have information booths and vehicle displays. Attendees also will be able to purchase food from a variety of local food trucks. 

Chandler Municipal Airport is located at 2380 S. Stinson Way, Chandler. For more information about the event, visit Chandler Airport Day
