Mobile Aeroplex evolves into aerospace innovation, training hub

MOBILE, Alabama – Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley, the home of Airbus’ A320 Family Assembly Line in Alabama, is in the early stages of a transformation that its leaders believe will make the former Air Force base a hub for aerospace innovation, research and job training.

“Everything we are doing here is designed to make this into a world-class facility,” said Roger Wehner, director of Mobile Airport Authority (MAA), which oversees the 1,700-acre industrial complex.

Even before construction on the Airbus production center began in April 2013, MAA officials had launched a makeover of World War II-era air base, which was showing its age. Wehner said that tens of million of dollars has been invested in improvements for the Aeroplex in the recent years.
