A Leader in Flight, Space and Advanced Air Mobility
The birthplace of aviation is on the cutting-edge of manned and unmanned aerospace innovation.
What started with the Wright brothers has developed into an aviation and aerospace industry hub continuing the tradition of innovation in flight. From 3D printing to unmanned aerial systems (UAS), air force operations and other advanced aerospace technologies, Ohio is where aviation engineering and aerospace companies invest in the future.
In Ohio, aerospace manufacturers can:
- Hire from a skilled and continuously expanding workforce — currently at nearly 38,000 — prepared for in-demand careers. Ohio’s colleges and universities educate, train and upskill workers in engineering, UAS, aerospace manufacturing, technology and more.
- Take advantage of a supply chain trusted by the industry’s best. Ohio is the nation’s leading supplier state to Airbus and Boeing. Within and around Ohio, you’ll find an array of companies specializing in propulsion, landing and braking systems, advanced materials, fluid handling and motion control, as well as sensors and integrated aircraft systems.
- Partner with government, academic, military and industry organizations pursuing aerospace research and aviation development. This includes Battelle, the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Ohio UAS Center and the NASA Glenn Research Center, which runs more than 500 specialized research and test facilities, including sound testing for drones.
