FAA Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center

Since 1946, the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center has led the way in aviation training, research, aircraft maintenance and logistics support. The Center was first established under the Civil Aeronautics Administration as Will Rogers Field to provide centralized training and aircraft maintenance. In 1978, Congress passed legislation to change the Center’s name to the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in honor of Senator Mike Monroney, who authored the legislation that created the Federal Aviation Administration in 1958.

Today, the Center is home to over 6,300 Federal employees, contractors and students. Employees work in a wide variety of FAA organizations and perform critical functions that touch every aspect of the National Airspace System (NAS) to support the safe and efficient operations of national and international aviation systems. The Center is the second largest employer in Oklahoma City and the fourth largest employer in the state, with an annual economic impact of over $1.65 billion. In 2021, the Center will celebrate 75 years of excellence, with no plans to rest on its laurels as aviation and aerospace technology is advancing faster than ever before.
