Governor Sam Brownback held his first Economic Growth summit focused on the aviation industry on April 25, 2011, in Wichita. This major summit brought together in one place more than 160 representatives from the aviation manufacturing and aerospace industries, colleges and universities, and community leaders from the Wichita area to share ideas and plan for the future of this vital industry in Kansas.
The Brownback Administration will develop ideas coming from the aviation summit into an action plan for the industry to be implemented later this year. The Kansas Department of Commerce would like to hear from you. If you have suggestions or a comment regarding the aviation industry in Kansas and how to make it prosper, send us your ideas.
