Robin Wohnsigl, President and Chief Executive Officer of Laurentian Aerospace said: “Work will begin immediately on various aspects of the project including the design and development work which, actually, has been in process now for a few weeks.

Gary Douglas, President of the The North Country Chamber of Commerce, called the milestone "an historic day for the North Country.
