From the AOPA website:

Southern Illinois Airport, Carbondale, Illinois: The Carbondale airport is no stranger to large aviation events after pulling off a weekend packed with pilots clamoring to view the total solar eclipse at its longest point of duration Aug. 21. Home to Southern Illinois University’s Transportation Education Center, the airport showcases the latest technology for in the automotive industry and includes three large labs for testing alternative fuels, advanced emissions controls, electrical controls, engines, and brakes; as well as labs for automotive transmission, engine, fabrication, and two- and four-wheel drive dynamometers. For anyone who is into cars, this building’s behind-the-scenes look at how they come together is a must-see. As part of AOPA’s larger effort to encourage young people in aviation, many of Southern Illinois University’s flight students will be volunteering during the event. The school’s Flying Salukis are a competitive force in the National Intercollegiate Flying Association championships, landing in the top three for the seventh year in a row in 2017. For outdoorists, Carbondale is located near Shawnee National Forest and the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. Carbondale is an easy flight from many points in Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, northern Mississippi and Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.
