Rickenbacker International Airport is a joint civil-military public airport located 10 miles (16 km) south of the central business district of Columbus, near the village of Lockbourne in extreme southern Franklin County, Ohio, United States. The southern end of the airport extends into northern Pickaway County. The base was named for the famous early aviator and Columbus native Eddie Rickenbacker. It is managed by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, which also operates Port Columbus International Airport and Bolton Field. Rickenbacker International is used primarily as a cargo airport for the city of Columbus and a growing number of passenger charter carriers are using the airport as well.

The United States Air Force maintains a presence in the form of the Ohio Air National Guard's 121st Air Refueling Wing, the first Air National Guard unit to fly KC-135 Stratotankers. Rickenbacker International is also the headquarters for the Ohio Military Reserve, one of the state defense forces of Ohio.
