If your industry is aerospace or defense, finding locations for new or expanded facilities is becoming an ever-critical aspect of your business.

Between 2009 to 2017, more than 500 aerospace and defense projects were announced, totaling more than $11 billion in investment and more than 50,000 jobs. Civilian aviation is a major force in the global economy, too, with 57 million jobs supported by aviation worldwide.
