Stennis International Airport is located on the eastern rim of Stennis Space Center’s 125,000 acre Buffer Zone and is only 12 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico. Our strategic location provides the optimal condition for various aircraft testing and training that would otherwise be unfavorable to encumbered airports. In addition, Stennis International Airport is rapidly expanding with a 12,000SF Corporate Hangar, a 26,000SF Restore Hangar, and a 100,000SF hangar with more room to grow.
Stennis International Airport is home to Tyonek, a Super 8A depot-level Maintenance, Repair, and Operations company that provides systems acquisition and life cycle sustainment support for continued mission success. Tyonek has various core competencies including mechanical and electrical design and testing; FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) Development; Systems Engineering (avionics, flight control systems, etc.); Flight Test & Evaluation; Prototype Development; Aerodynamics; Structures; Stress and Structural Analysis, EMI/EMC/ECP/ECO; Powerplants, and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
Currently, we are working to establish a flight simulated training center at Stennis International Airport which will allow military personnel to train with simulation software catered to their aircraft.
