COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) applauded the passage of House Bill 370. The bill would add a depiction of Wilbur and Orville Wright’s first piloted airplane, the Wright Flyer, to the Great Seal of the State of Ohio and to Ohio’s Coat of Arms. In doing so, it commemorates one of the greatest achievements by Ohioans of a successful controlled flight.


In 1903, the Dayton-raised Wright brothers became the first to ever sustain a piloted aircraft. By adding the Wright Flyer to these two prominent visual representations of Ohio, H.B. 370 distinguishes Ohio as the true birthplace of aviation. The airplane will be placed above and to the left of the sun, lauding the accomplishment of the Wright brothers at the near center of the image.


The bill allows for all existing supplies and materials bearing the current representation of the state seal and coat of arms to be exhausted before the new image is produced. It has the support of the Ohio Aviation Association and the National Aviation Heritage Alliance.

“As Chair, I am proud to have worked with my colleagues in the House State and Local Government Committee for assisting Rep. Perales in the process of supporting House Bill 370 and having the bill be presented to the entire floor of the House,” said Rep. Anielski. “I look forward to when we can see the Wright Flyer across the state, affirming Ohio’s place as the birthplace of aviation.”


Having passed out of the House, H.B. 370 now awaits consideration by the Ohio Senate.
