Airport Master Plan Update

Arrow over houses

The Ohio State University Airport began updating its master plan in fall 2017 to identify current and future needs, and to gain consensus on investment priorities for the next 20 years. 

The airport, the third busiest in the state, is one of the leading general aviation facilities in the nation and an important contributor to the economic vitality of the central Ohio region. It is a learning lab for future professionals, a core facility for University research, and provides key serices to Columbus area industries. 

The master plan will combine community engagement with the university’s strategic vision to formulate the blueprint for the airport’s long-term development. The Federal Aviation Administration will cover 90 percent of the nearly $873,000 study.


From engineering phases and public involvement meetings to final documents, here is an estimated timeline for the master plan update process.
