Ohio should have the Wright Flyer on its official state seal

Ohio ‐ the birthplace, home and future of aerospace ‐
should have the Wright Flyer on its official state seal

As the leading supplier state to both Boeing and Airbus and the home of the Wright Brothers, John Glenn, Neil Armstrong and two premier federal aerospace labs (NASA Glenn Research Center and Air Force Research Lab) Ohio is clearly a leading aerospace state. But we can and should do more to stake our position as the #1 aerospace state. By putting the Wright Flyer on the official Ohio state seal, Ohio shows the world that we value our aerospace heritage and, more importantly, our role in leading the future of aerospace. Ohio State Representative Rick Perales’ bill to place the Flyer on the state seal enjoys strong support from across the Buckeye State:

OAI has joined Ohio’s aerospace community on the Ohio Aerospace and Aviation Technology Committee, chaired by Representative Perales, and the Ohio Aerospace and Aviation Council to develop policy recommendations and identify opportunities to make Ohio the undisputed national leader in aerospace. We’re proud to support these efforts and help unite the state to grow Ohio’s aerospace economy.
