Ellington 100-year Anniversary Celebration

Ellington Centennial

There are very few operations of any kind that can accurately claim to be “hitting their stride” at the age of 100, but that is most definitely the case in regards to Ellington Airport (EFD). For 100 years, Ellington Airport has served the interests of the United States, the State of Texas and the Houston region, and its brightest days appear to be lying ahead. 2017 marks Ellington's one-hundredth year in aviation.

Join Houston Airport System as they honor 100 years of service, with a FREE public event celebrating the rich history, and the exciting future of Ellington Airport. The celebration will feature food, live music, aircraft displays and family-friendly activities.
