Oklahoma Department of Commerce
Oklahoma has a legacy of aerospace innovation and success dating back more than 100 years, with pioneers like Wiley Post, who launched his career of exploring the limits of high-altitude, long-distance flight in our state. Today, some of the world’s most successful aerospace companies operate in Oklahoma. Our central location has made us a hub for MRO where a strong, skilled workforce rebuilds and repairs aircraft. Located in Oklahoma City, the nation’s central FAA and USDOT training center is responsible for training more than 80,000 students annually. American Airlines runs one of the largest commercial aircraft MRO facilities in the world. We also have the largest military MRO in the country.
