Alabama workforce programs build early aerospace talent pipeline

A strong pipeline of workers is crucial to the success of Alabama’s aerospace industry, and workforce development efforts are aiming for a head start.

A growing number of training programs in the state are targeting high school students, and even those in middle school, to put them on an early path to career success.

These are the kind of initiatives that can put Alabama on the front foot as the state’s business recruiters work to expand the aerospace industry at events like the 2022 Farnborough International Airshow, now under way near London.

One good example is the program lineup at Flight Works Alabama, a 15,000-square-foot aerospace education center that opened nearly two years ago near the Airbus manufacturing plant in Mobile.
