Kentucky is seeing dynamic growth in its aerospace industry. Recent preliminary figures show the Commonwealth has moved into the number two spot in aerospace exports in the United States.
It trails only the state of Washington, which is the home of Boeing. And aerospace now tops the lists of Kentucky’s exports.
Joining us to discuss Kentucky’s aerospace sector and what it will take to keep it growing are Steve Barnett, president and CEO of Indy Honeycomb in Covington; Executive Director of the Kentucky Aerospace Industry Consortium, D. Stewart Ditto; and Mike Michele, vice president of Wheels and Brakes Manufacturing at Walton Safran Landing Systems.
The Covington Business Council will hold a luncheon March 23, Thrusters On: A Rocketing Industry Group in Kentucky. For more information, click here.
