Aerospace study shows OKC taking flight
In Oklahoma City, aerospace is not an upstart industry or a hope for the future. Aviation is in our DNA. Since Wiley Post, a native Oklahoman, made history with the first solo flight around the world in 1933, Oklahoma has been on the cutting edge of aviation.
The numbers speak for themselves with more than 230 public- and private-sector aviation and aerospace firms in OKC, the industry directly or indirectly supports more than 67,600 workers and the production of $8.2 billion in goods and services.
The story of aerospace in Oklahoma City is more than raw numbers and size. The story of aerospace in Oklahoma City is also about diversity.
