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 about eight 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.
Corporate Park Development
Columbus, Ohio is one of the most dynamic and diverse metropolitan regions in the U.S. Centrally located, the region boasts the greatest market access of any major metro—with 46 percent of the U.S. population within a 10-hour drive. Five Fortune 500 and 15 Fortune 1000 companies call the area home.
As an important facet of the regional economy, KOSU has recently updated its master plan to include a 50-acre corporate air park. Build-to-suit private hangars with easy airfield access are already being constructed.
Planned runway enhancements at KOSU will provide industry partners and charter travelers with greater access to global destinations. Sites dedicated to aviation manufacturing and service providers are being identified for development on the airport’s campus.
KOSU provides easy access and attentive service to 200+ tenants and corporate partners. The regional economy is boosted from an estimated impact of $157 million in direct and indirect benefits.
