Wichita: Where Aviation Took Wing
THE PEOPLE. THE PROMISE.
Wichita brought it all together. It claimed the title of Air Capital of the World in 1928 and holds it still. The birthplace of Beechcraft, Cessna, Learjet, Mooney and Stearman has built roughly 300,000 aircraft. More than any other place on the planet. Today it builds leading piston aircraft, advanced business jets and major aircraft components. It’s quite a story. One that continues to unfold.
