Your Vision Is Our Mission
Garver plans with your future in mind. We examine how our designs influence airfield functionality and how construction activity impacts operations. Our smart planning maximizes funding, schedules, and usability.

From general aviation to international air carrier facilities, the Garver Aviation Group develops innovative, cost-conscious, and sustainable solutions to enhance your airport's safety and utilization.


This is the engineering firm I fell in love with many years ago; the one who would figure out a way to get us funding and make it happen.

    Tulsa International Airport

    Soaring down the runway, the F-16 Fighting Falcon dropped its tailhook and snagged the arresting cable that spanned the pavement.
