AVWeb: Lease Signing Approved
This week, AVweb’s news roundup found reports on a lease signing for an aviation museum, an engine STC approval and the introduction of a new bonded seal for aerospace applications. The Ohio Air & Space Hall of Fame and Museum (OAS) has signed a lease with the Columbus Regional Airport Authority (CRAA) for the original 1929 Port Columbus air terminal and tower. With the help of a $550,000 grant from the State of Ohio, the nonprofit organization plans to renovate the structures and offer free exhibits honoring Ohio air and space pioneers, research archives and a science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) education center, along with rentable meeting and event spaces. OAS plans to open the renovated facility in late 2021.
