Last call!  Register to play golf and/or sponsor part of the day to help raise funds for aviation scholarships.

The 2023 OAA Golf Outing will be held on Friday, September 29, 2023 at the Golf Club of Dublin. The golf outing is OAA's primary fundraiser for its annual Norm J. Crabtree Scholarships for aviation students.  All registrations, sponsorships and donations will be run through the newly formed Ohio Aviation Foundation. The Ohio Aviation Foundation received its 501(c)(3) status from the IRS.  That means 100% of your donation is tax-deductible. 

We will need about 72 golfers to hit our minimum.  But, golf registrations are a break even part of the day.  Therefore, we need organizations to consider sponsoring one (or more) of the 18 holes, longest drive, longest putt, Donut hole breakfast, reception and other parts of the day to help raise funds for our annual aviation scholarships.  The other option for supports is to make a direct donation to the foundation for our scholarship fund.

The post golf networking reception will be held at the clubhouse from 1-3p.m.  

Our post-golf reception speakers include:

  • Joe Zeis, Aerospace & Defense Advisor, Office of Governor Mike DeWine
  • Mitch Blackford, Assistant Director of Field Operations, Ohio Department of Transportation
  • Meghan Altier, Deputy Director of Operations, Ohio Department of Transportation 
  • Andrew Brenner, State Senator, Chairman of the Senate Education Committee and Member, Senate Transportation Committee

Are you feeling lucky?

For those of you who feel lucky we are bringing back the prospect of larger prizes. For those golfers who think they’ve got what it takes to hit a hole in one ($10,000 prize) or can drain a put from 60 feet ($5,000 prize) start practicing.  Not good at golf?  We will also have a chance for one foursome to roll the dice.  If they spell C-A-S-H they all split a $5,000 purse.

Thank you to our current sponsors!  (as of September 18, 2023)

OAA Political Action Committee - Call for Support

The Ohio Aviation Association Political Action Committee (OAA PAC) would like to thank those who have supported our efforts in 2021. Without your assistance, the OAA PAC would not have been able to provide over $5,500 in donations to Ohio legislators that support aviation in 2021.  We ask you to consider supporting our efforts into 2022 because our work is not done. The latest federal legislation that provides funding for airports brings the need to continue to talk about airports with state legislators.  We will work to ensure Ohio can fully realize all the federal funding that is due to our eligible airports.

We cannot do this without your assistance! To learn more about OAA PAC, or to contribute, please click the button below:
