Air Transportation & Aerospace Campus

The Air Transportation & Aerospace Campus is an important teaching and research laboratory, whose focal point, The Ohio State University Airport, is the nation’s premier university owned and operated airport, supporting interdisciplinary learning, discovery, and engagement. This nearly 1,500 acre facility, located just seven miles off campus in northwest Columbus, consists of 350,000 square feet of office, classroom, simulation lab, and hangar space; three runways and associated facilities; and 20 university-owned aircraft, a variety of unmanned aerial systems, and multiple simulation platforms. Much of the land is available for the development of new office, R&D, and hangar space.
