University Aircraft Now Features EKU Paint/Logo Scheme

No, Eastern Kentucky University has not established its own air force, but the university’s rapidly expanding Aviation Program has taken a leap in visibility with the first of many airplanes bearing an EKU design and color scheme.

Earlier this fall, EKU aviation student Marty Dye flew the first of the newly painted aircraft from Tulsa, Okla., to Richmond’s Madison Airport, where the university’s Aviation Program is based. By next summer, the university’s fleet bearing EKU marks is expected to total 12 single-engine aircraft and possibly as many as three twin-engine planes.
