Aerospace coalition formed

Economic development officials in five counties formed the Gulf Coast Aerospace Coalition in a bid to work together to attract aerospace companies to Northwest Florida. The group includes Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton and Bay counties. In December, members of the coalition will travel to Hamburg, Germany, to attend the Global Aerospace Supply Chain Conference in Hamburg on Dec. 4-5, and a Northwest Florida Leadership Forum will be held in Hamburg on Dec. 8-11.
