Twin Ports Aviation Business Is Booming

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - At a news conference Thursday at AAR in Duluth, Mayor Don Ness joined officials from AAR and Lake Superior College in announcing aviation sector job growth in the area.  AAR has recently added a line and now employs 276 workers with 40 other positions to fill.  Over the next five years, the Twin Ports region is projected to see an additional 1500 aviation sector jobs including aerospace products and parts manufacturing.  Lake Superior College is in the process of developing degree programs in aviation mechanics and general aviation technology to help train people to fill those jobs.
