Louisiana – A Leader in Aviation & Aerospace
Louisiana has been a leading state for the aviation and aerospace industry since the birth of the industry. Home to NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility, one of the largest manufacturing facilities in the world, Louisiana is paving the way for space exploration.
Globally recognized companies have also established in the state and are benefiting from the sizeable workforce and strong talent pipeline that meets industry demands.
“Whether it’s cutting-edge virtual reality training programs or statewide higher-education partnerships with aerospace businesses, Louisiana continues to find new and innovative ways to invest in our greatest resource: our skilled workforce. In combination with our other business advantages – superior infrastructure and logistics, abundant sites, expedited permitting and competitive incentives – that talent pipeline has Louisiana’s already thriving aerospace sector poised for expansion.” ―Don Pierson, Secretary of Commerce, Louisiana Economic Development
