Tulsa International Airport (IATA: TUL, ICAO: KTUL, FAA LID: TUL) is a city-owned public-use airport located five miles (8 km) northeast of the central business district of Tulsa, a city in Tulsa County, Oklahoma, United States.

The 138th Fighter Wing of the Air National Guard is based here. The airport is the global maintenance headquarters for American Airlines.

During WWII, Air Force Plant No. 3 was built on the southeast side of the airport, and Douglas Aircraft manufactured several types of aircraft there. After the war, this facility was used by Douglas (later McDonnell Douglas) and Rockwell International (later Boeing) for aircraft manufacturing, modification, repair, and research. IC Corporation now manufactures school buses in part of this building.

Facilities and aircraft

Tulsa International Airport covers an area of 4,360 acres (1,764 ha) which contains three paved runways:

  • Runway 18L/36R: 10,000 x 200 ft (3,048 x 61 m), Surface: Concrete
  • Runway 18R/36L: 6,101 x 150 ft (1,860 x 46 m), Surface: Asphalt
  • Runway 8/26: 7,376 x 150 ft (2,248 x 46 m), Surface: Concrete

For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2006, the airport had 129,014 aircraft operations, an average of 353 per day: 35% general aviation, 26% air taxi, 25% scheduled commercial and 13% military. There are 167 aircraft based at this airport: 32% single-engine , 22% multi-engine, 31% jet, 2% helicopter and 13% military.

American Airlines Maintenance Facility

Opened in June 1946, American’s Maintenance & Engineering Center at Tulsa International Airport is one of the largest and most sophisticated aviation maintenance facilities in the world . It is the headquarters for all Maintenance and Engineering activities at American Airlines worldwide, and is the maintenance base for the airline’s fleet of MD-80, B757, and B737 and some B767 and B777 aircraft – a combined total of nearly 600 airplanes. The Tulsa Base also performs all overhaul work on American’s Pratt and Whitney JT-8, and General Electric CF6-80 and CFM56 jet engines. Cutting-edge Base features include jet aircraft wheel and brake overhaul facilities and a composite repair center. With nearly 6,800 employees, more than 5,800 of whom are licensed aircraft and jet engine mechanics, American’s Tulsa Base is one of the largest private employers in Oklahoma . The Base occupies about 260 acres and 3,300,000 square feet (307,000 m) of maintenance “plant” at the Tulsa Airport. Each year, the base performs major overhaul work on about 80% of American’s fleet. It also does aircraft maintenance for other carriers on a contract basis.

Industrial Land Development

Tulsa Airport Authority, in 2008, has begun a new Industrial Land Development project. Aerospace is one of the Oklahoma's largest industry clusters with 400 companies that directly or indirectly employ more than 143,000 people with a payroll of $4.7 billion and an industrial output of $11.7 billion. Tulsa is ranked 8th nationally for the size of its aerospace engines manufacturing cluster and 20th for its defense-related cluster.

TUL's central location in the midwest is easily accessible by a multi-modal transportation network. With a total of 4,000 acres (16 km) and 14,000 on-airport employees, Tulsa is a large center of aviation activity. Six sites totaling over 700 acres (2.8 km) of real estate will be developed. Each of the sites can be divided in to smaller lots to meet any organization's individual needs.

World War II

Activated as a USAAC facility on 1 August 1939 as an advanced civilian pilot training school to supplement the Air Corps' few flying training schools. Spartan School of Aeronautics was selected for flight training. The Air Corps supplied students with training aircraft, flying clothes, textbooks, and equipment. The Air Corps also put a detachment at each school to supervise training. Flying training was performed with Fairchild PT-19s as the primary trainer. Also had several PT-17 Stearmans and a few P-40 Warhawks assigned. Spartan furnished instructors, training sites and facilities, aircraft maintenance, quarters, and mess halls.

Provided instruction until 4 August 1944 when inactivated with the drawdown of AAFTC's pilot training program.
