Publication schedule

The Avion is published weekly during the fall and spring semesters, a total of 13 issues per semester. The newspaper is published bi-weekly in the summer; a total of six times. The Avion publishes two special issues: an orientation edition in late August and an April Fools' Day edition, also known as The Avioff, on April 1.


The newspaper is distributed free of charge to students, faculty, staff and visitors. Mail subscriptions are available for $50 per year.


The Avion is a division of the Embry-Riddle Student Government Association, which partially funds the organization. The newspaper is run entirely by students, and most of the contributors are volunteers.

The editor-in-chief is elected by a majority vote of the newspaper's staff, and receives a 25% tuition voucher for his or her services. Executive board members are appointed by the editor-in-chief, and each executive board member receives a 10% tuition voucher.


The Avion is a weekly tabloid newspaper and consists of four sections. The first section consists primarily of campus news and student opinions. The second section presents a collection of news in the aviation and aerospace industries. The third section is dedicated to the university's athletic teams. The fourth section is anchored by the entertainment page, and also carries the comics and classifieds.
