Since 2003, Bell Helicopter, Lockheed Martin and Triumph Aerostructures – Vought Aircraft Division have led the Aerospace Consortium. The companies have been instrumental in the creation of the “Gotta Jet?” career awareness program for students and their parents as well as the development of a common entry-level training program for future employees. With the support of the Arlington and Fort Worth Chambers, Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County, the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center and Hillwood Properties, the Consortium continues to make important contributions to the North Texas region. As one of the key industries for the region, aerospace manufacturing employs workers in over 75 companies, and promotion and training programs developed by the Aerospace Consortium will ensure that there is a pipeline of future employees for years to come.
