To help future generations of professionals understand the critical events that transformed their fields through an oral history of 9/11, ERAU, and our last twenty years of service in diverse sectors across the world.


Where We Were, 9/11 2001 (interactive map download)
Where We Were Interactive Map This map displays the locations of everyone who has shared their stories and  lessons learned for this project.  

 On the morning of 9/11, the Embry-Riddle community was all over the world – in the  skies, deployed overseas, just waking up at home, or already working in  airports, offices, bases, businesses, and schools.  


The attacks of 9/11 fostered a strong sense of community. This map is a reminder that we are a community united by our connections to ERAU and by our memories of that terrible day.
