Purdue's history in the aerospace field stretches back to the 1908 when it graduated its first pilot, J. Clifford Turpin, who was taught by aviation pioneer Orville Wright. Three years later, Turpin broke a world record when he flew to an altitude of 9,400 feet. Other Purdue aerospace firsts include:

According to "The Story of Purdue Engineering,"the Purdue Aero Club was the first aviation club on campus and was organized by students and its first faculty director, Professor Cicero B. Veal of mechanical engineering, in the spring of 1910. Veal was the first faculty member to give active support to aviation. Among the club's first ambitions was to gather a collection of aeronautics literature.

Personal Comments: I graduated from Purdue Aero Engineering in 1989 and went to work in Fort Worth, Texas. After a couple of years, I came to Wichita, KS to work for Boeing Military on the B-52 bombers. After many years of procrastinating, I received an MS in Aero Engineering from Wichita State in 1999. I guess I'm pretty well planted in Oz since I met my wife, Beth, here and now have two pretty cute kids, Katarina (Katie) 3/97, and Benjamin 9/99. I try to get back to Kokomo at least twice a year and I'm always interested to hear news from home.

Community interest in aviation continued when Purdue was established across the Wabash River in what was to become West Lafayette. The Purdue Aero Club was organized in 1910 under the direction of Professor Cicero B. Veal of mechanical engineering, and the community's first aircraft demonstration was held on June 13, 1911. Sponsored by the Purdue Alumni Association and the Lafayette Journal newspaper, this "Aviation Day" attracted an estimated 17,000 people. Other flights to campus during the next few years continued to draw large crowds.
