Florida Continues to be a Premier Aviation and Aerospace Location
While the manned Space Shuttle program has come to an end, Florida’s unique history of spaceflight, an entire aviation industry, existing workforce and infrastructure, and unique geography continues to help grow existing Florida companies and attract new and exciting private ventures. Florida continues to be a premier aviation and aerospace location, which employs more than 85,000 Floridians. The aerospace industry helps to generate bold economic development initiatives and brings much needed jobs not only to Florida’s Space Coast, but throughout Florida. As NASA’s role evolves, private aerospace companies are playing increasingly important roles in space exploration. Florida’s business community and government leaders must work together to address the needs of Florida’s aviation and aerospace industry.
Thank you for helping us secure Florida’s future.
