Dayton’s Manufacturing Strengths Give eVTOL and Other Urban and Advanced Air Mobility Companies Good Reasons to Build New Aircraft in Dayton
By Elaine Bryant, Executive Vice President for Aerospace and Defense
SPRINGFIELD—The Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport received a $226,000 grant from JobsOhio’s Ohio Site Inventory Program (OSIP) for infrastructure work to support charging stations and flight simulators for eVTOL vehicles.
In 2020, companies committed to create more than 1,994 new jobs in the Dayton Region, retain more than 8,203 jobs and invest more than $604.9 million in capital improvements, the Dayton Development Coalition announced Wednesday at its 2020 Annual Meeting. The numbers represent companies that worked with the DDC and JobsOhio to expand or establish new operations in the region.
We have a simple, straightforward mission at the Dayton Development Coalition: To recruit, expand and retain jobs in the Dayton Region. When the year ends and we look back on our work, those three things show the growth of the region’s economic base.
For 2019, those metrics hardly seem like enough. In a year that saw catastrophic storms and horrific violence, the Dayton Region responded with compassion, strength, and resiliency. 2019 marked the year our community let the world see what makes us #DaytonStrong.
