FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 29, 2017 Memphis, TN - The University Aviation Association is pleased to announce the relocation headquarters office from Auburn, AL to Memphis, TN.

A centrally located city allows UAA to expand programming and member services while strengthening our connection with the general aviation community.“
According to UAA President Dr. Daniel Prather, “Offering a physical office location in Memphis is designed to accommodate both members and vendors in the most efficient manner possible. Hosting an on airport office is critical to further strengthening UAA’s ties to the industry we love.”
The new headquarters is now located at 2787 N 2nd Street, Memphis, TN. UAA is planning an open house for all members to tour the new offices, which will coincide with the Memphis Air Show in early May.
