Tulsa Airport Authority
On January 21, 1928, 47 local business men signed the Stud Horse Note, agreeing to finance the construction of Tulsa’s first airport, and support its operation thereafter. These civic minded leaders comprised the airport’s first executive committee.
Today, Tulsa Airport Authority (TAA) is a charter authority of the city of Tulsa established to administer, manage and operate Tulsa International Airport and R.L. Jones, Jr. Airport. TAA’s mission is to provide a safe, efficient, self-supporting airport system for the citizens of the Tulsa metropolitan area and surrounding region.
