The American Association of Airport Executives is a national organization representing the academic and government interests of civil aviation personnel. With thousands of members nationwide, it is the leading association for aviation professionals. AAAE's members represent over 850 airports nationwide plus hundreds of companies that support aviation. The organization offers extensive professional development opportunities for both students and industry veterans. In addition, over $100,000 is awarded each year to interested students through scholarships and grants.

The Ohio State Aviation Management Organization (AMO) is the student chapter of AAAE on campus. We provide members interested in any aspect of aviation with the resources and industry access to build a professional bridge between college and the aviation workforce. AMO frequently hosts guest speakers, airport and aviation facility tours, conferences, networking opportunities and other social events. While in AMO, students can broaden their interests, strengthen their career profile, connect with industry professionals and share their passion for all things aviation. Beyond college, with the skills earned in AMO, our alumni members go on to do amazing things all across the industry, further expanding Ohio State’s global network and outreach.
