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.
