The first-ever meeting was held on Aug. 25 at Grimes Field in Urbana and hosted by the Champaign Aviation Museum during the Mid-Eastern Regional Fly-In (MERFI).

William Hayes, OSBA Aviation Law Committee chair commented on the meeting, “OSBA Aviation Law Committee members were very pleased to meet with members of the Ohio House Aviation Caucus and discuss how improving laws impacting aviation can contribute to Ohio’s economic development and our communities. We hope that our many years of experience and expertise will be a resource as members of the Ohio House Aviation Caucus develop legislative proposals. ”
The OSBA Aviation Law Committee exists to facilitate and encourage communication among members of the legal profession interested in aviation law.
