Region positioned for growth, says Aerospace Alliance chairman

PARIS – The chairman of The Aerospace Alliance says Alabama and its Gulf Coast neighbors stand to benefit from a growing commercial aviation sector symbolized by the Airbus manufacturing facility that’s about to open in Mobile.

The Alliance is a partnership meant to foster cooperation between four Southeastern states that have targeted expansion and growth opportunities in aerospace. The group sponsored a Sunday networking cruise on the Seine that was heavily attended by industry executives and economic developers from alliance states.

On the eve of the Paris Air Show’s opening ceremonies, Chairman Neal Wade, a veteran recruiter who now serves as the director of the University of Alabama’s Economic Development Academy, said the Gulf Coast region is poised for aerospace growth because of its already robust capabilities.
