Rural Oregon Aviation Relief 2018 - Click here to learn more about the opportunities to apply for the Rural Oregon Aviation Relief (ROAR) Program.
Oregon Department of Aviation (ODA) is focused on working with rural communities in assisting commercial air service through our Rural Oregon Aviation Relief (ROAR) Program. Our rural airports are an imperative asset to the aviation system and play a critical role in the economic development of the surrounding local communities. The ROAR grants are an opportunity for ODA to learn from our rural airports and work towards accomplishing their vision to better serve their communities needs and dynamic economies.
The ROAR Grant Cycle is an open cycle that will run continuously.  Applications will undergo a completeness review by ODA staff and be referred to the next most appropriate State Aviation Board for further review.

There has been a significant increase in inquiries to the Oregon Department of Aviation regarding Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones).  Below are some links to pertinent sources that can help citizens and stakeholders understand federal and state law.  Included are links to recent legislation in Oregon as well as links to federal guidelines.
