Economy Rockford: Aerospace Industry to Boost Economy

23 News economic expert Janyce Fadden says our local aerospace cluster is vibrant but we need to make it even stronger. Fadden says more than six thousand jobs and 90 local companies are tied to aerospace, making it an important sector to our current and future economy. The Economic Development Council has been reaching out to aerospace companies who want to do business in the U.S., and our first opportunity was at the Paris Air Show last year.

Fadden says the aerospace industry is expected to be strong for the next 10 to 15 years.
