North Carolina's Aviation Industry Soars

Record #:
The state's aviation industry uses emerging technology and a skilled workforce to soar to new heights. The jobs are high-paying--$25 an hour and up. Plus the contracts are for five years or more, adding stability to the economy. Among the companies are Charlotte-based Goodrich Corp. which manufactures 80 percent of the world's landing gear and Spirit AeroSystems, which is building a $570 million plant at Kinston's Global TransPark which will employ 1,000 by 2014 to make components of the Airbus A350.
