The Sky’s The Limit

Kentucky meets the growing workforce demands of aviation and aerospace companies by redeploying a surplus of highly-skilled workers from industries such as coal and steel. We’re helping lead the charge. In 2017, we launched Appalachian Sky to bring more aerospace and aviation companies to central Appalachia, where the number of skilled metal workers is eight times the national average.
