The videos in this library document the evolution of Northeast Ohio Regional Airport from its inception in 1965 to the present. The Airport was originally conceived to function as an economic engine that would fuel area business and job growth. In 2011, the Airport had aged to the point of requiring significant repairs and maintenance. A plan was set into motion to reconstruct the runway, build a modern terminal building, and make numerous operational and safety improvements. Upon completion in 2017, HZY was one of a handful of fully compliant airports in Ohio. The result has been increased activity among all aircraft, and especially by corporate jet aircraft. It has been estimated there are over 2,000 good paying jobs in Ashtabula County that are possible in part to the operational capabilities and convenience of HZY.

This video helped justify the Airport’s retention of jet capability. The resolution is very low due to standard definition video and an 18-minute runtime. It is interesting to hear Ron Clutter’s vision for SPIRE Institute & Academy that is becoming true more than a decade later.
