Airport Fun Day
at Ottawa Airport

Mark your Calendars! Fun for the whole family!
See more details on the Airport Fun Day site.
Always the Last Saturday in August...

August 25, 2018

The Ottawa Municipal Airport is a general aviation airport facility operated and managed by a contracted Airport Manager according to the Airport Services Agreement. Currently, the Airport Manager also operates a private business on airport property subject to a Fixed-Base Operator’s (FBO) lease.

The Public Works Department assists with operations and maintenance activities at the airport which are beyond the scope of the Fixed Based Operator’s contract. The airport has undergone major improvements and repairs recently. These include a repaved runway, new hangar and terminal offices. Further improvements are programmed as resources permit according to an approved Airport Master Plan. A copy of the Master Plan is available for public review in the references section of the Ottawa Public Library.

Fly-In News & Airport Day

Monthly Fly-Ins are held the third Saturday of the month, starting at 8:00am-10:00am through the months of April to October. Come join us for breakfast and visit with others around the area.

Airport Fun Day is the Last Saturday in August.



Aviation Explorers Program for Area Youth


AVIATION EXPLORERS is a community group open to young men and women from 6th grade through age 20 from Ottawa and surrounding cities interested in exploring Aviation! This hands-on program meets twice a month at the Ottawa Airport, combining classroom training with flying lessons and providing other opportunities for youth leadership. Currently with a roster of 25 young people, its members get to experience firsthand what it’s like to be a pilot, aircraft mechanic, flight engineer, or air traffic controller. Find out more by attending any regular meeting with no obligation to join, the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month at the Ottawa Municipal Airport from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. Parents welcome as well. Post Advisor Jen Sharp coordinates meetings, guest speakers, adult committees and membership.


This Aviation Career Exploring program is delivered through support from the City of Ottawa, the Heart of America Council, and Dodson International Parts.  Bob Dodson generously donated an airplane to Post 8000 for the youth to refurbish and learn to fly. Aviation mechanics Robert Bowers and Milton Scott are overseeing the project and Flight Instructor Chad Caylor is overseeing their flight training along with other CFIs from the area.
