A Leader in Air, Space and Autonomous Integration
The birthplace of aviation is on the cutting-edge of manned and unmanned aerial innovation.
Ohio offers an ecosystem with leading-edge research, innovation and collaborative development that aerospace and aviation companies continue to rely on. From commercial aircraft engines and fluid handling to navigation systems and infrared imaging sensors, more than 550 aerospace and aviation companies in Ohio provide access to products and services critical to the industry and its advancement. Ohio is now becoming an epicenter for the next generation of flight with urban air mobility and integrated autonomous systems.
In Ohio, you can:
- Hire from a skilled and continuously expanding workforce — currently at nearly 38,000 — trained for in-demand careers including engineering, manufacturing and technology.
- Collaborate with government, academic, military and industry organizations including Battelle, the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Ohio Unmanned Aircraft Systems Center and the NASA Glenn Research Center, which runs more than 500 specialized research and test facilities, including sound testing for drones.
- Access manufacturers, suppliers and buyers through an established and comprehensive supply chain, with key competencies including propulsion, landing and braking systems, advanced materials, fluid handling and motion control, unmanned aerial systems, as well as sensors and integrated aircraft systems.
Ohio is actively investing in a living lab for integrated autonomous systems on the road and in the air. Learn more about what Ohio is doing to drive urban air mobility and a fully integrated autonomous transportation ecosystem forward.
JobsOhio is committed to supporting pioneers in the state and driving industry-changing innovation. That’s why we created the JobsOhio Research & Development (R&D) Center Grant which includes up to $100 million of overall funding assistance that helps facilitate the creation of new R&D centers across Ohio in nine targeted industries.
