“Building Something Better”: Aviation is a form of transportation that faces many of the same issues of other modes of transportation. Whether an airport is in a large city or in a rural setting, it is part of a larger transportation system. OAA is “Building Something Better” for aviation in Ohio such as: working to educate other modes to enhance connectivity to/from our communities, enhancing air service funding, enhancing community partnerships, and enhancing grant programming. As OAA’s goals progress, the public will have improved personal and business travel, public safety and access to the global economy. This effort is important to the community, however, it cannot work without the full support and services of you!  

So the question is: How will you help in “Building Something Better” for Ohio?
