Industry Contributes 28,000 Jobs To Commonwealth's Economy
NASA and industry are joining forces to recognize aerospace as a
high-tech engine propelling Virginia's economy and creating
high-paying jobs. NASA leaders from Langley Research Center in
Hampton and Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore will join
aerospace industry representatives statewide to bring this message
to Virginia General Assembly members on AeroSpace Days 2012,
Wednesday and Thursday (February 8-9) in Richmond.
Individual events include an education showcase of student
programs and how they are contributing to the Commonwealth's future
aerospace workforce, co-sponsored by the chairs of the House and
Senate Education Committees.
Astronaut Anna Fisher, who flew as a mission specialist on
STS-51A in 1984, will speak with Senate and House pages. Dr. Fisher
logged a total of 192 hours in space and was the first mother ever
to fly in space.
Over 300 aerospace firms in the Commonwealth contribute $7.6
billion to the Virginia economy and create more than 28,000 jobs
with an average annual salary of nearly $100,000. NASA's two
Virginia facilities bring in $1.2 billion and support nearly 11,000
jobs. Virginia's newest aerospace asset, the Mid-Atlantic Regional
Spaceport (MARS), is one of only four commercial spaceports
licensed by the FAA to send rockets into orbit.
