Missouri aerospace manufacturers are supported by the state’s cost-competitive, pro-business, and innovative environment, exceptional talent, extensive training programs, access to raw materials, and globally connected infrastructure. In addition to the F/A-18, both the EA-18 Growler and the F-15 Strike Eagle fighter jets are made in Missouri, along with a vast array of military ordinance.

Missouri’s aerospace manufacturing talent is deep, specialized, and experienced.  For more than 100 years Missouri talent has constructed some of the finest airplanes to grace the skies. Additionally, Missouri’s central location allows for aerospace manufacturers to receive raw materials, and ship their finished product, quickly and efficiently to the global market via our international airports, extensive river barge infrastructure or any of the US Class 1 railroads.
