Aerospace and Defense Workforce Development

Oklahoma boasts a rich tradition of excellence in the aerospace industry with a legacy reaching back more than 100 years to trailblazers like Wiley Post who became the first man to complete a high-altitude long-distance flight, flying alone around the world in less than eight days. Oklahoma is also the birthplace for the aviation careers of Clyde Cessna - an American aircraft designer and entrepreneur who founded Cessna Aircraft Corporation and Weatherford’s General Thomas P. Stafford, an Air Force general who went on to pilot NASA’s Gemini VI mission and commanded two more before serving pivotal roles in the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project and the development of Stealth Technology.
