The National Aviation Heritage Area is an organization that “seeks to conserve, interpret, develop and promote the historical resources of the National Aviation Heritage Area”. The Specific National Aviation Heritage Area is located in eight separate counties in southwestern Ohio. Ohio, which is also the home state of the Wright Brothers, is actively working to preserve and protect the state’s rich aviation history by encouraging all pilots to visit its heritage sites.
Historic sites, which range from museums to seaplane bases, offer a wide variety of entertainment for the whole family. The following Ohio sites are eligible destinations for this month’s National Aviation Heritage Region Pilot Passport Challenge:
