- Flight Operations supplies aircraft and pilots for missions that include transportation of state officials and ODOT employees, aerial photo work for ODOT’s CADD & Mapping Office, aerial support for the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) in their drug interdiction work, and a wide variety of specialized aerial support for Ohio’s Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), such as wildlife survey and management.
