Summit landing in Huntsville

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- A city long known as one of the nation's premiere aerospace and defense centers will host the third aerospace summit of the four-state Aerospace Alliance next month at the Von Braun Center. The agenda includes discussions about unmanned aerial systems, a session on composites manufacturing, commercial space programs and an update on the $600 million Airbus final assembly line being built in Alabama's port city of Mobile. Two previous summits were held in Destin, Fla., and New Orleans, along the Interstate 10 aerospace corridor. (Source: GCAC, 09/24/13)
