Aerospace in Action Committee Overview
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, 777 and 787 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. The work of this committee assures longer term sustainability of the aerospace cluster.
Aerospace in Action (AIA), an advisory group of Snohomish County supply chain companies, guides EASC on issues of importance to the industry and provides a venue for discussion among peers.
