The Arizona Regional Economic Development Foundation recently formed Aerospace Arizona to act as a conduit to promote, advance and support the state’s aerospace industry — which is currently ranked fifth in the country.
To improve this ranking, the organization represents its members and informs them on legislative, regulatory, safety and technical issues. It also serves as a proactive advocate for the enactment of responsible legislation and public policy that promotes the economically viable and environmentally responsible development of the aerospace industry throughout the entire state. In line with that mission, Aerospace Arizona also operates an unmanned test site in Benson, Ariz.
