Ohio University Airport (KUNI)

Ohio University is among a small number of colleges and universities that own and operate its own airport. Ideally located just twelve miles southwest of the Ohio University main campus, the Ohio University Gordon K. Bush Airport and Snyder Field is a public-use airport served by a 5,600 foot paved runway. The airport size is ideally suited for student training, which allows for more training time in the air instead of on the ground operations. Also, the airport supports GPS, ILS, LOC, and NDB approaches for student instrument training and public use. 


The Ohio University airport has FAA certified A&P mechanics on the field and all are FAA IA certified. Ohio University mechanics maintain the thirteen aircraft in the Department of Aviation fleet, the six aircraft in the Avionics Engineering fleet, and the Ohio University Air Transportation Beech Super King Air 350. In addition to the maintenance support provided for the Ohio University fleets of aircraft, maintenance services are available to the general public who have aircraft based at the field, to transient pilots, and to aircraft owners who want to fly in to have maintenance performed on their aircraft.
