Bombardier Investment Takes Off
In April 2012, Bombardier Aerospace held a groundbreaking ceremony in Wichita, KS as part of a $600 million investment to expand its Learjet facility. The project will accommodate new aircraft programs and research facilities, giving the site a role in the entire Bombardier Aerospace product portfolio. This expansion includes the growth of Bombardier's Flight Test Center, the creation of a Bombardier Center of Excellence in Engineering and Information Technology, a new production flight building, a new paint building, and a new delivery center. This expansion will also serve Bombardier’s newest Learjet 85 aircraft platform, which started its flight test program in April 2014.
The total value of the investment is more than $600 million and is expected to create more than 1,000 jobs over seven to ten years.
