Press release from Cal Poly Humboldt:

To provide students an opportunity to access and learn about aviation, Cal Poly Humboldt’s student-led Aviation Club will be hosting a special event with the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard will land a helicopter at Cal Poly Humboldt. The event is free to attend for people of all ages.

The Aviation Club was established in 2020. The club aims to lower barriers for students interested in aviation by helping prepare students to take their drone pilot license test, and by offering training on the University’s flight simulator (located on the second floor of the Library).

  • What: Coast Guard Landing (weather permitting)
  • Who: Cal Poly Humboldt Aviation Club
  • When: Saturday, April 20, starting at 11 a.m.
  • Where: Cal Poly Humboldt, parking lot (G11) at LK Wood and Harpst Street.

The event is weather dependent.

The eastern portion of the lot and Rossow Street (from Harpst Street to the Parking Kiosk in front of the Student & Business Services) will be closed to parking and traffic. G11 will still be accessible from LK Wood.
