San Jose State Aviation!

The San Jose State University aviation program is one of the nation’s oldest and the only public institution in California offering a BS in Aviation.    With degree emphasis options in Professional Flight, Operations, Aviation Management and Maintenance Management, SJSU is well positioned to assist aspiring aviation professionals in realizing their dreams.

 Come and sit in our aircraft, talk with our students and faculty, and learn more about the educational opportunities we provide.

Our community has people going hungry all year long, not just at Christmas!  Feeding kids during summer months can be a worry to some families.  Please consider bringing a donation of canned food when you attend Hot San Jose Nights this year.  It will make you feel good that you are doing something that might seem so simple for many of us but can make a real difference to a family in need!  Look for our Second Harvest Food Bank barrels at the entry point and lets fill them up!  For anyone who would rather make a cash donation online you may click here for the link.  On behalf of Second Harvest Food Bank we thank you!
