Most at meeting favor project

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Despite some mild concerns about noise, for the most part the conversations at a public meeting Tuesday were all about jobs and the positive economic impact ST Aerospace would have on the local economy. Pensacola is hammering out details with the Singapore-based company to bring a 300-employee maintenance facility to Pensacola International Airport. ST executives attended the meeting, including Joseph Ng, president of ST’s operation in Mobile, Ala. Ng said he hoped ST could begin servicing commercial jetliners by the first quarter of 2016. He said most jobs would be paying in a range between $30,000 and $58,000 annually.
