Oklahoma Space Industry Development Authority
The Oklahoma Air & Space Port is the controlling agency for the Infinity One Spaceflight Corridor – the first FAA approved corridor in the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) currently for flight operations not within restricted airspace or Military Operating Areas (MOAs). Our corridor is 152-mile-long and 50-mile-wide. We are the controlling agency for all scheduling and flight operations.
We have one of the longest and the widest civilian runways in the United States.
- RWY 17R/35L: 13,503-foot by 300-foot concrete runway
- 1,000-foot asphalt overruns on the main runway
- RWY 17L/35R: 5,193-foot by 75-foot concrete secondary runway
- Runway end identifier lights (REIL)
- Precision approach path indicators (PAPI)
- High-intensity runway lighting (HIRL)
- Instrument approaches include ILS, LPV, VOR-DME, RNAV, GPS, TACAN and localizer
Operational Control Center
The newly constructed operations control center is home to our telemetry room (T&M) for monitoring spaceflight launches, flight, re-entry, and other flight and testing operations. The center also is the operations headquarters for the Oklahoma Space Industry Development Authority.
Control Tower & Airport Ops
Our fully operational control tower provides air traffic control services 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
Clinton-Sherman (KCSM) airport has about 25,000 flight operations per year, an average of 100 flight operations per day. We have about 90% of military traffic operations and 10% of commercial/ general aviation traffic. We are proud to support the Department of Defense (U.S. Air Force and Navy primarily) that uses our airport for the flight training of their aircrews.
Our airport with one of the longest and the widest runway in North America (13,503×300-foot) is ideal for flight testing operations. Our main customers include Boeing, Cessna and Honda Jet, beyond other private companies.
Crash & Rescue
The Oklahoma Air and Spaceport Crash and Rescue Facility is fully staffed by the United States Air Force 24 hours a day, Monday through Friday (excluding federal holidays).
Lease / Build
We have more than 2,000 acres of land available for development. To help with costs, the Oklahoma Space Industry Development Authority offers bonding toward the construction of new buildings at Oklahoma Air & Space Port. The facility has a wide variety of potential building sites available, including ideal aviation and industrial land with available utilities for development. Our facility currently has over 100,000 square feet of available hangar space (six commercial aircraft hangars) located near our ramps, taxiways and runways.

Space Flight Liability and Immunity Act, 3 O.S. §§ 351-353 (effective Nov. 1, 2013)
To enhance and attract spaceflight opportunities, the Oklahoma Legislature passed House Bill 1882 in 2013. It is a liability and immunity act as described below:
A spaceflight entity is not generally liable for participant injury provided that the participant has been informed of the risks of spaceflight activity in the manner required by state and federal law and the participant has given informed consent. “Spaceflight entity” includes certain manufacturers and suppliers of components, services or vehicles.
