North Carolina being considered for another major aircraft manufacturer?

on the heels of Honda Aircraft Company selecting Greensboro for its world headquarter and Honda Jet manufacturing plant, North Carolina is on a list for another major aircraft company. This time its Rolls Royce which is looking at North Carolina as a potential site to build its jet engines. North Carolina and particularly the Triad is becoming a hot bed in the aviation industry. Two other companies plan to open airplane manufacturing facilities near Greensboro"

"The cost to do business in North Carolina, I don't want to say it's cheap, but in relative comparison ... you can't beat it," said Younger, who works out of Cessna headquarters in Wichita, Kan. "Greensboro may have been the best-kept secret on the East Coast."

Believe metro already started a thread for this a couple of months ago. Though looks like (according to your links) that things are more definitive now, which is a big positive.

sorry didnt know.....I guess continued conversation can take place here. I think NC has the opportunity to become America's aviation manufacturing hub the same way Michigan became the hub for automobile manufacturing.

Honestly this thread is incomprehensible in what it tries to put forth. This is because the topic started as just a set of links and quotes from newspapers which are against our rules. Why don't you try to find the original topic and add something in your own words on what is going on including the fact there is a manufacturer in Greensboro that is looking to start building Gruman's seaplanes again.
