Created by House Bill 292, which was passed by the Ohio General Assembly and signed by Governor Kasich on June 17, 2014, the Committee brings together members of the aerospace and aviation community from industry leaders, military representatives, academic experts, and state government officials. The goal of the Committee is toee develop a singular, focused, statewide strategy that will unite often disparate segments of the aerospace and aviation community, and ensure that Ohio’s already rich aerospace and aviation legacy will lead the nation for years to come.
