The Press of Atlantic City is preparing a report on Atlantic City’s impact on aviation, from the 1910 Aero Meet to the testing facilities at the William J. Hughes Technical Center. Coverage will appear in advance of the 2012 Atlantic City Airshow in August.

We are interested in hearing your stories about the area’s aviation past, whether you flew from Bader Field, helped build the Atlantic City International Airport or tested cutting-edge technology for the Federal Aviation Administration.

Readers can submit their stories of up to 180 words in length for publication in print or online. Email your submissions with a phone number where we can reach you to aviation@pressofac.com or mail them to Atlantic City Aviation c/o Wallace McKelvey, The Press of Atlantic City, P.O. Box 3100, Pleasantville, NJ 08232.
