Pilot and Crew Amenities

The Ohio State University Airport (KOSU) welcomes pilots and crew to the Austin E. Knowlton Executive Terminal & Aviation Learning Center. KOSU has a variety of facilities and amenities, including the John H. McConnell-Worthington Industries Flight Hub, relaxing day rooms, NetJets Lobby and Observation Deck, quiet study spots and a modern finished main terminal. A description and images of each are provided below. At KOSU we are dedicated to providing a feeling of your home away from home – it's called being a Buckeye.

Our pilot lounge includes a mapping table, kitchenette, snacks and drinks, along with individual washrooms. The lounge also includes not one, but six cable TVs. There is a designated business center within the lounge that has multiple computers so that pilots and crew may chat, coordinate and plan in a secluded area. The lounge directly connects to our flight school, which enables networking opportunities for the next generation of aviation professionals.
