department of airports
The Oklahoma City Department of Airports is comprised of three airports: Will Rogers World Airport, Wiley Post Airport and Clarence E. Page Airport. The airports are owned by the City of Oklahoma City and leased to the Oklahoma City Airport Trust, which oversees the management of the facilities. The department is led by Mark Kranenburg, Director of Airports, who is responsible for the operations of the airport system.
WILL ROGERS WORLD AIRPORT
With three major runways—two 9,800-ft parallel runways and one 7,800-ft crosswind runway—Will Rogers World Airport can accommodate any size aircraft. With a strong mix of commercial, freight, military, corporate and general aviation activity, the number of operations for 2011 exceeded 130,000.
Six commercial carriers serve Will Rogers with an average of 75 daily departures to 20 nonstop destinations. Total traffic for 2010 was 3,466,127, a 2.41% increase from 2009.
The airport is home to 67 companies that employ over 10,000 people. Major tenants include the FAA's Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, AAR Aircraft Services – Oklahoma, ARINC, the Federal Bureau of Prisons Transfer Center, Southwest Airlines Reservation Center and the Metro Tech Aviation Career Center.
Will Rogers World Airport encompasses Oklahoma City's Foreign Trade Zone, providing cargo logistics and tariff-related advantages for companies who trade internationally. With its central location, just minutes from “America’s Crossroads” (the junction of I-35, I-40 and
I-44.) and large developable tracts of land, Will Rogers World Airport offers great development opportunities for aviation, aviation support, industrial, office and retail businesses.
WILEY POST AIRPORT
A world-class reliever airport for Will Rogers World Airport, Wiley Post Airport (PWA) functions as a major center for corporate and business aviation.
This northwest Oklahoma City airport provides a thriving environment for aviation related industry such as major overhaul and maintenance, avionics repair, paint and interior, making PWA a one-stop repair center for corporate and business aviation. In 2011 Wiley Post logged 77,514 flight operations. This figure accounts for only those operations logged by the air traffic control tower which is open daily from 7 A.M. until 10 P.M.
The airport provides a base for over 480 aircraft in its fully leased hangars. These range from single and twin engine planes to turboprop and jet aircraft. A growing number of licensed pilots consider Wiley Post their airport home, and their activities give the facility a strong community orientation.
Atlantic Aviation and Valair are Wiley Post's two fixed base operators; both provide high quality FBO services, as well as rental cars, limo service, hotel accommodations, catering and hospitality for transient pilots.
The airport is home to numerous aircraft sales, maintenance and flight training facilities which are utilized by clients throughout the United States and worldwide.
PWA is also the home of the Runway Cafe, located in the terminal building. The cafe is one of Oklahoma City's favorite breakfast and lunch destinations, attracting both airport and off-airport customers to its great food and traditional, down-to-earth Oklahoma hospitality.
The airport offers two parallel runways. The longest, 17L/35R is 7200' X 150 has precision ILS approaches on both runways.
CLARENCE E. PAGE AIRPORT
Named for another Oklahoma aviation pioneer, this facility has great appeal for grass-roots aviators and the general public. It is home base to a large number of experimental and small general aviation aircraft, as well as a small number of ultra lights.
The airport has parallel runways, the longest being 6014ft X 100ft. One full service FBO and two aircraft maintenance facilities are based on the airfield. The airport is equipped with an automated weather observation station.
It's a small group, but an effective one. Composed of five members, the Oklahoma Airport Trust is entering its 56th year of providing leadership and oversight of the Oklahoma City Department of Airports.
The trust oversees the operations of three facilities - Will Rogers World airport, Wiley Post Airport and Clarence E. Page Airport - plus buildings and grounds for the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, a major national Fedenal Aviation Administration Complex.
