While doing some research about Warr Acres Oklahoma, I thought about the nearby Wiley Post Airport in Bethany. I looked up their website and found some facts that I thought to be interesting.
Located in the Northwest Oklahoma City area, the Wiley Post Airport is home to almost 50 businesses with approximately 1000 employees. The airport is also neighborhood friendly with runways that allow takeoffs with minimum noise to the area during most weather conditions. It is home for nearly 400 aircraft ranging from single engine to corporate jets. Wiley Post is also designated as a reliever for the Will Rogers World Airport. I have dined at the Annie Okie’s Runway Café under the control tower several times and have always enjoy the food and the window view of the planes taking off and landing. It’s also fun to watch the exited children that sometimes frequent the restaurant with their parents.
The Wiley Post Airport has flight training and plane rental facilities. There is also a museum, and planes for sale. I’m sure there are many different types of service centers, as well as flight support.
If you work, have a business or affiliated the Wiley Post Airport in any way, We would love for your comments. Feel free to tell us about the business you are with, or any history about the airport that those who read this might be interested in knowing about.
