AEROSPACE & DEFENSE

A GREAT PLACE TO LAND

Home to nearly 180 well-known companies in the industry, aerospace/aviation is Arkansas’s second leading export, in part because the state offers a very competitive environment for aerospace and aviation companies to operate.

Arkansas has numerous available sites with runway access and aviation-focused facilities, along with a highly skilled labor force nearly 1.3 million strong.

Dassault Falcon Jet has grown by 30% (employment) in the last 15 years.
