Office of Economic Development talks aviation in Richmond

On Monday, July 18, several staffers from the Office of Economic Development traveled to Richmond, Virginia to discuss the statewide aviation workforce’s strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities. The Office of Economic Development has been working to create a plan to strengthen the aviation and aerospace workforce in the Commonwealth since engaging with the Virginia Department of Aviation.

The input session on Monday provided our economic development specialists an opportunity to solicit insightful feedback from stakeholders on all sides of the aviation pipeline, from educators to industry. The discussion was productive and engaging, and led to connections being made between stakeholders. On all counts, the session was valuable, and will help our economic development specialists continue to craft a helpful plan for the Commonwealth.
