Our Vision: To be the nationally recognized voice for the public interest, states and territories on aviation and the national aviation system.


Students can now enroll in the Graduate Research Award program for the Airport Cooperative Research Program of the National Academies Transportation Research Board.  This program supports applied research in public sector airport-related issues, and provides funding, expert support, national recognition, and publication potential through the Transportation Research Record of the Transportation Research Board. Students must be enrolled full-time in a graduate degree program and have until May 29th, 2014 to submit their application. Students also have the opportunity to present their work during an expense-paid trip to Washington D.C. at the Transportation Research Board’s annual meeting. For more information and to find out how to apply, please visit:

Whether you are a state aviation official, staff member or a Friend of NASAO, there are opportunities for you to become more involved with NASAO through participation on one of our many Committees. See a complete list of opportunities and let us know where you would like to be involved. More
NASAO is one of the most senior aviation organizations in the United States, predating even the Federal Aviation Administration’s predecessor, the Civil Aeronautics Authority. The states first established NASAO to ensure uniformity of safety measures, to standardize airport regulations and develop a truly national air transportation system responsive to local, state, and regional needs.

NASAO holds two formal conferences each year – our Annual Convention and Trade Show, typically held in September and a Washington Legislative Conference held in the nation’s Capital during the February/March timeframe. NASAO also has a presence at EAA’s AirVenture, held each year in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in late July.
