Public Involvement

The Department of Aviation at Syracuse Hancock International Airport is committed to involving the public in programs related to aviation/aerospace as often as possible. We offer an airport tour program, providing an average of 100 tours annually. Tours can be arranged for almost any age group; participants ages 4 and up will benefit the most from the tour and presentation. After the tour, the group is welcome to have lunch in one of the airport’s conference rooms. With advance notice, it may also be possible to schedule a tour of the Syracuse Fire Department Airport Division.

If you are interested in scheduling a tour at the airport for your group or school, please fill out our Tour Request Form. The completed form can be mailed or faxed using the above information, or e-mailed to

By offering educational initiatives at the airport, we hope to make the general public aware of the aviation industry and airports and provide this meaningful exposure to our youth so that they might increase their awareness of potential career opportunities in the aviation industry.
