Transportation to the Ohio State Airport

The Ohio State University Flight Labs are taught exclusively at The Ohio State University Airport. The airport is located about 7 miles northwest of the main Columbus campus, and there are currently two different options for travelling between the two locations.

Personal Car

The majority of our students will drive their personal car to and from the Ohio State Airport. The drive is about 7 miles and takes around 20 minutes. Traditionally, freshman are not able to purchase a parking permit to park their car on campus, however the Center for Aviation Studies can issue those students a waiver.



The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) does offer bus service from main campus to a shopping plaza about 1 mile from the Ohio State Airport.  This service is free for Ohio State students, as it is incorporated into tuition.
