For more than 80 years, Ohio University has trained pilots and aviation professionals who keep our air traffic moving safely and efficiently. Our graduates create for good by keeping passengers, crew and cargo safe on the ground or at 30,000 feet. It is our top priority. Ohio University is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, near Hocking Hills. Outdoor pursuits include biking, hiking, and canoeing on the Hocking River.
