Wichita: A City Grounded in Aviation
Beyond Wichita Eisenhower National Airport, there's a whole lot more to the aviation story in Wichita: one of the world's most important centers for the manufacturing of aircraft. Specifically, Wichita leads in the production of light general aviation aircraft and business jets, as well as major structural components for large commercial airliners.
Wichita is proudly home to Boeing, Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft, Spirit Airlines, Bombardier Aerospace's Learjet division, and now Airbus with its new wing design division. It is also home to McConnell Air Force Base.
With five major aircraft manufacturers located here, empowering Wichita to supply two-thirds of the world's commercial airliners and 60% of the world's general aviation and military aircraft, it's no wonder Wichita is considered the "Air Capital of the World."
