Aircraft Parking Ground in Ohio

Put-in-Bay Twp Port Authority

The Put-in-Bay Township Port Authority was formed on January 8, 1991. The port authority's purpose is to preserve and promote the existence of the airports and seaports of the three Bass Islands. The largest and most populated is South Bass Island, also known as Put-in-Bay. Middle Bass Island and North Bass Island are also under the jurisdiction of the port authority.

Put-in-Bay is also known as South Bass Island. The three Bass Islands—South Bass, Middle Bass, and North Bass—are home to over 700 residents. Summer visitation is estimated at 750,000 people annually, who utilize our harbors and airports.

In 2021 the number of students enrolled in Put-in-Bay school is 77, and our graduating class will be seven seniors! There are three students that are flown in from Middle Bass to attend our PIB school. Aircraft are a primary means of transportation for winter residents of the Bass Islands for both supplies and passengers.


Winter hours for freight pick up are 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM Monday thru Friday.
