Summit kicks off first North Texas Aviation Week
September 27, 2013
The Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau has created the first North Texas Aviation Week, calling it a chance to start a long-overdue tradition for a largely overlooked, integral part of the city’s local fabric. Aviation-related events and media opportunities will run during a 10-day span.

Fort Worth is home to local aviation entities including American Airlines, Bell Helicopter, and Lockheed Martin, and the Dallas/Fort Worth region is home to the second-largest aviation cluster in the United States. It is also home to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the third-busiest international airport in the country.

These aviation companies have partnered with the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau to create Aviation Week. The effort consists of a campaign using email, a website, and social media to promote, educate, and bring awareness to the public of the city’s strong, proud aviation history. The effort is also working on partnerships with local school districts.
