Airbus links with Alabama universities to build new leaders

One of the ways Airbus is putting down roots in Alabama is through partnerships with local universities that aim to help shape the next generation of industry leaders.

The aerospace giant has donated large airplane components to engineering departments at the University of South Alabama and Auburn University for students and faculty members to use in their studies.

Airbus, which delivered the first A321 passenger jet made at its Mobile manufacturing plant to customer JetBlue in April, also is working with a researcher from USA who is exploring new uses for the composite materials used in aircraft construction.
