VT MAE breaking ground

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Ground will be broken Friday for a new VT Mobile Aerospace Engineering maintenance, repair and overhaul hangar at Pensacola International Airport. The invitation-only event will be at 11 a.m. Singapore-owned VT MAE will eventually employ 300 to 500 workers at the Pensacola operation. The $46 million project allows the company, which has had an more than 1,000-employee operation in Mobile, Ala., since 1991, to expand into Pensacola with what has been called a “ninth hangar.” (Source: GCAC, 10/27/16) Previous; related story about VT MAE's Mobile operation in October issue of the Gulf Coast Aerospace Corridor Newsletter, page 7
