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 had a successful 5K race event last year that attracted several hundred people from surrounding communities to the airport.
We hosted our first Red Tails exhibit and provided free admission to children from area schools. We 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.
