Louisiana's established advanced manufacturing sector provides unparalleled advantages for aerospace operations. Nationally recognized for its manufacturing talent, the state is making additional strategic investments in higher education programs to enhance skills and expertise. The state offers unparalleled infrastructure and logistics, an abundance of sites and expedited permitting. Add to that the nation's best state workforce development program and internationally competitive incentives, and it's clear Louisiana provides aerospace companies a competitive edge.

At the core of Louisiana's competitive advantages is the strength of its business climate. In recent years, the state has enacted reforms to create an atmosphere that Forbes magazine calls, "America's new frontier for business opportunity." Louisiana now ranks in the Top 10 states in the country for business climate according to several national publications including Area Development, Business Facilities and Site Selection magazines.

Globally-recognized aerospace companies such as AAR, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman have established operations in Louisiana and are benefiting from the state’s unique advantages.

"We considered several sites for this new facility, and Louisiana’s proposal demonstrated the state’s commitment to economic development. The state’s established aerospace industry and exceptional workforce training programs were also key factors in our decision to make Louisiana a partner in expanding our manufacturing footprint.” 
- John Garrison, CEO, Bell Helicopter
