Overview

The work of AIA assures long term sustainability of the cluster of aerospace-related businesses in Snohomish County. Boeing estimates that airlines will need $4.0 trillion worth of commercial airplanes over the next 20 years. Whether they’re built here — or somewhere else — is largely up to us, and what we do to stay competitive. Recent studies estimate that Boeing 747, 767 and 777 programs contribute over $300M in taxes and employ almost 53,000 people, with some 40,000 at the Everett plant with wages and benefits valued at approximately $6.8B. Add to that taxes, jobs and wages for the 218 other aerospace related businesses in Snohomish County, and one can easily see why the aerospace cluster is as important to us as it is.
