About OAA

The Ohio Aviation Association is the voice for airports that contribute to the economic vibrancy and well-being of Ohio, the birthplace of aviation.

To achieve this vision, OAA:

  • Advocates on behalf of Ohio’s airports at the local, state and federal level
  • Communicates the value and economic benefits of Ohio airports and aviation industry to members, legislators, the media and the public
  • Educates through an annual conference, peer-to-peer mentoring and additional training/forums
  • Engages members through regular communication, education and involvement in OAA activities

Association activities are primarily supported through membership dues and the dedicated volunteerism of its members.  Membership is comprised primarily of fixed base operators, airport sponsors, airport planners and engineers, pilots, and aviation enthusiasts.

About the Annual Conference

The OAA Annual Conference is held each spring. Participants represent a wide variety of positions and specialties within the Ohio aviation community. This is a very interactive and dynamic event where individuals attend to learn, network, and plan to take away valuable information that they can use in their current role.
