Welcome to the Colonel William Marsh Bower Center at Portage County Airport in
This year we are working on establishing sustainable funding for the center and building our educational programs.
We’ve hosted a successful 5K race event that attracted several hundred people from surrounding communities to the airport and host an annual fly- and cruise-in open to all members of the community.
In the past, we’ve sponsored our first Red Tails exhibit and provided free admission to children from area schools. We have partnered with Experimental Aircraft Association chapters, the Boy Scouts and Kent State University.
This year we intend to build on our success and develop new partnerships with other museums, education and aviation organizations.
Stay tuned for all of the latest updates.
