News and Events

Special events are scheduled throughout the year in New Jersey. In addition, museums throughout the state feature aviation exhibits.

2015 International Aviation Art Contest
New Jersey artists aged 6 to 17 were invited to participate in the 2015 International Aviation Art Contest (pdf 744k). The 2015 theme was "World Air Games".

Artwork was judged, at least in part, for its creative use of this year’s theme in relation to the aviation world. The contest is divided into state, national and international segments. The winners of the state contest will compete nationally and finally, national winners will compete internationally.

National results are in!

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), Division of Aeronautics is proud of all our young artists, and are very excited that three New Jersey artists, Xinyi (Christine), Cassie and Matthew, have been recognized for their artistic talent at the United States National level competition. Their artwork will be forwarded to the International level competition.

And now for the International Contest results:

NJDOT Division of Aeronautics is excited to announce that Xinyi (Christine) Zhang tied for second place in the 6-9 years age group at the International Aviation Art Contest.

The 2015 winning entries for the New Jersey contest are available for viewing.

Museums and foundations

From Teterboro in the north of the state to Rio Grande in Cape May County, New Jersey’s southernmost county, eight aviation museums tell about the history of flying in the Garden State.

The museums preserve more than 200 years of aviation heritage, from the famous Curtiss Wright J-5 Whirlwind Engine used by Charles Lindbergh, to space travel exhibits.

To find the museum you would like to visit and learn about its offerings and the days it's open, choose from this list.
