Florida Space Industry To Visit State's Capitol On March 12

Aerospace-Related Business Brings $19.2 Billion And 140,000 Jobs To Florida

Representatives from Florida’s aerospace industry will visit Tallahassee on March12, 2014, to participate in Florida Space Day and share with legislators the opportunities the industry brings to Florida and the nation’s space program.

“In Florida, aerospace means business,” said Patty Stratton, chair of Florida Space Day 2014. Nearly all 67 counties contribute to this $9 billion industry, led by nearly 500 companies employing 30,000 residents; and space-related industries grow that amount to $19.2 billion, supporting 20,000 companies and 140,000-plus jobs.

“It translates into high tech, high paying jobs,” said Stratton. “We want Florida to continue its aggressive stance to create a robust atmosphere for space exploration and business.” Florida has the third largest space industry in the nation.

Former NASA astronaut Bob Crippen (pictured), pilot of the first orbital test flight of the Shuttle program and former NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Director, will be making scheduled appearances throughout the event. Space-related exhibits will be available on the third floor Rotunda of the Capitol.

Florida Space Day participants include Abacus Technology Corp, AECOM Government Technical Service, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, ASRC Aerospace Corporation, Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, Astrotech Space Operations, ATK, Bionetics, The Boeing Company, Blue Origin, Brazil-Florida Chamber of Commerce, Craig Technologies, D3 Air & Space Operations, Delaware North Companies, Dynamac Corporation, Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Exelis, Florida Space Institute, Harris Corporation, InDyne Inc, Jacobs, Jacksonville Aviation Authority, LJT & Associates, Lockheed Martin, Millennium Engineering & Integration, QinetiQ North America, Space Coast Launch Services, Space Florida, SpaceX, United Launch Alliance and URS.
