Officials Promote Kansas Aviation Industry At English Air Show

Kansas officials are in England this week promoting the state's aviation industry.

Senator Jerry Moran, Governor Sam Brownback and Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George will be discussing Kansas aviation at the Farnborough International Airshow near London.

Executives from Wichita's Spirit AeroSystems, Hawker Beechcraft, Cessna Aircraft, Boeing, Airbus and Bombardier also will be there.

Brownback says the Kansas delegation is working to promote current companies and recruit more companies to Wichita.

Wichita builds and delivers more than 40 percent of the world's general aviation airplanes.
