NAHA trustees and staff took part in the 4th annual Ohio Aerospace Day on Wednesday, June 5, in the Ohio Statehouse Atrium in Columbus.

Presented by the Ohio Aerospace and Aviation Council, Ohio Aerospace Day highlights the contributions of aerospace and aviation in Ohio and focuses on continuing the growth of the aerospace industry and aviation businesses in the state where aviation was born. Activities included panel discussions, meetings with legislators and exhibits.

NAHA was there to promote Ohio's rich aviation heritage. Joe Zeis, chair of the Ohio Aerospace and Aviation Council, noted the importance of heritage in telling the industry's story. "Our heritage is the foundation that we build the future on," said Zeis, who is also the Dayton Development Coalition's vice president for aerospace. 
Ohio headed for Paris Air Show

Despite sequestration and the ongoing uncertainty of U.S. military budgets, the official U.S. Pavilion remains the largest international pavilion at the International Paris Air Show, and
it continues to grow steadily to its present 4,100 square meters-the largest in the past decade, according to a May 31 Aerospace Manufacturing and Design report.


The State of Ohio will have its brand displayed with a booth hosting a delegation of aerospace manufacturers, universities, and aerospace advocacy organizations. The booth was organized by The Ohio Aerospace and Aviation Council and JobsOhio. The State of Ohio's booth will showcase the products and services of Precision Alloy Services, the Ohio State University, Renegade Materials, Maverick Corporation, SIFCO Industries, Inc., Tesla NanoCoatings Inc. and the University of Akron.


Other Ohio aerospace companies registered for the pavilion include Aerospace Manufacturing and Design of Richfield, Makino of Mason and Voss Aerospace of Cleveland. Visit for the full article.
