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 2023. 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 2023.  We ask you to consider supporting our efforts into 2023 and 2024 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:

Member Highlight

Our Member Highlight program will periodically highlight members. The purpose is to bring attention to recently completed airport projects, or upcoming projects, in Ohio as well as highlight airport economic impacts in one, easy-to-read document. Once completed, this one-page speaking piece can be used by members when speaking with officials, OAA will use it to spread the news of Ohio's airports, and more!  Contact us at [email protected] for more information on how to get your airport or business highlighted!
