OZ ART NWA
OZ Art brings together a network of art, artists, events, and experiences throughout Bentonville and Northwest Arkansas. Founded in 2017, OZ Art supports the regional arts scene with its own collection displayed throughout Bentonville and by collaborating with regional arts organizations.
The flagship of Arkansas aviation, Thaden Field is a municipal airport unlike any other. Investments from Runway Group helped break the barriers surrounding aviation, leading to an unmatched airport experience that instills the wonder of flight in all of us.
OZ1 is Arkansas’ premier flying club for pilots and aviation enthusiasts. We’re driving aviation experiences in order to grow the number of pilots in our community and within the industry. Whether you have been flying for years, days, or just love aircraft, you’re welcome in OZ1. Members receive discounted rates to club-owned planes, charter flights, and fuel; and also have access to speaker series and special educational opportunities.
Runway Group created Fly OZ, the backcountry aviation arm of Thaden Field’s offerings, as an opportunity for pilots to discover the endless adventures and beauty of the Ozark Hills through a network of grass airstrips in the region.
