Why BizJet Makers Are Going Stateside

RSS

As the business aviation industry descends upon Orlando next week for the 65th annual NBAA convention (download our App), we look at the trend of foreign business jet manufacturers setting up shop in North America.

Dassault and Honda chose to be closer to their customers in the U.S. Embraer is the latest to join the USA-made club, and Gary Spulak, president of Embraer Aircraft Holdings, notes that "where we go, we grow."

Next week’s cover story, “Made in the USA” will be available to digital subscribers later today. NBAA attendees can pick up a free copy at the show.

You can also watch a video of the building of Embraer’s new Phenom assembly facility and customer service center in Melbourne, Fla. Click here to see it.
