Flight Works Alabama

Choosing a site for Flight Works Alabama was not difficult. Much of the early history of Alabama aviation began at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley, including Monroe Park where aerial experimenter, John Fowler, displayed his flying machine designs. In 1929, the City of Mobile's first municipal airport, Bates Field, was dedicated and located within the geographic borders of the current Aeroplex. Then in 1939, this footprint of land supported military aviation operations, and today is home to Airbus and many additional aviation companies. Flight Works Alabama, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, recognizes that a community’s economic growth and resiliency correlates directly with education. Our innovative education center strives to not only inspire visitors, but to also provide opportunities for learners of all ages to master 21st century work skills and soft skills. Our vision is long-term impact on education and workforce development for the Gulf Coast and beyond.
