What is an avgeek?

An aviation enthusiast

An "avgeek" loves all things related to aircraft and air travel, such as the appearance and capabilities of an air vehicle or the science that makes air travel possible. The enthusiasm may be for all types of aircraft, including airplanes, helicopters, hot air balloons, and drones.

You may hear people use the term in person (pronounced "A-V-geek") or see people use it online in forums, on social media, or when messaging. For example, your friend may describe her husband in a message, "He's such an avgeek. He's spent countless hours in a flight simulator." Or, you might see it on social media as a hashtag in a post related to aviation, like when bragging about the capabilities of an airplane they are boarding.
