Through passionate strategic planning and member guidance, the current vision and mission are below:

Our Vision

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 and state 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

Originally made up of only airports, Ohio Aviation Association is now comprised of:

  •  Airport Management & Staff
  •  Airport Planners & Engineers
  •  Aviation Education Institutions
  • Direct Service Providers (FBO's, business partners, etc.)
  • Flight & Airport Management Students
  •  Aviation Enthusiasts

This mix of members has allowed for robust conversations and continued understanding of many aviation issues facing Ohio!  With a great mix of aviation interests, it ensures OAA understands the issues impacting all sectors of aviation. This knowledge helps us to 1) plan for advocacy efforts, and 2) plan for great educational topics.

By the end of 2021, the OAA membership was made up of over 800 individuals from over 75 airports and educational institutions, and over 40 companies. Association activities are primarily supported through membership dues and the dedicated volunteerism of its members.

Our Mission

The Ohio Aviation Association promotes aviation by advocating on behalf of airports in Ohio, communicating the economic benefits of Ohio airports and the aviation industry, as well as educating and engaging its members and the public.
