Friends of Downtown Island Airport works to enhance the unique aviation, recreation, natural and community benefits of the island that is home to our downtown airport. We do so by raising funds and awareness and activating community engagement
Thanks to Heather Ryerson and the Inside of Knoxville blog. Great write-up about the future of our island!
One of the nation's top aviation magazines had some very kind words to say about the future of Friends of Downtown Island Airport!
Thanks to AOPA for the spectacular article about our new organization!
Please consider a tax-deductible donation that will help us offer exciting new informational events suited for the aviation and outdoor enthusiasts at Knoxville's Downtown Island Airport.
We will seek to partner with the Island Home Area neighborhoods, such as South Haven, Island Home Park, and Old Sevier, working together for the benefit of the neighborhoods and the airport
We will connect, engage and foster sustainable use of the airport & other assets such as the greenways, trails, water and parks in South Knoxville
We will make the airport a strong asset in supporting STEM activities and spur younger generations locally to consider careers related to aviation
