Col. James Jabara Airport is a general aviation reliever airport for the Wichita metropolitan area. Midwest Corporate Aviation provides full-service fixed-base operator services.
Col. James Jabara Airport is the future home of a new, world-class technical education center that will support the aviation/manufacturing industry cluster. The first priority is the development of a two-parcel site representing 30+ acres of land for Aviation Technology, Advanced Manufacturing and Career Development/Assessment. Construction has begun and classes are expected to be fully functioning in 2010.
The first phase of the campus (211,000 sq. ft.) will be developed with room for growth allowing for top-quality programs in the growing industries of information technology and health care.
Wichita Area Technical College (WATC) serves as the managing partner for the Center, partnering with Wichita State University’s National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR),to provide industry-driven training courses.
