Kentucky aerospace industry consortium

 

making kentucky a global aerospace standard

The Kentucky Aerospace Industry Consortium is a community of Kentucky companies, entrepreneurs, engineers, students, pilots, veterans, policymakers, service providers, and anyone dedicated to making the aerospace industry in our Commonwealth recognized for its capabilities around the world. We are on the pulse of everything that dares to defy the ground. We are visionaries, Makers and Doers. We see limits and we test them. We see boundaries and we cross them. We think Kentucky is more than horses, bluegrass, and bourbon.

We see the future, and we're flying towards it.

We would like to extend the greatest thanks to our sponsors, who make KAIC Possible!

KAIC is dedicated to advancing Kentucky’s aerospace industry. However, we could not accomplish any of our goals without our wonderful corporate sponsors, who help build the broader Kentucky business ecosystem, raise the standard of Kentucky talent, and contribute to the financial sustainability of the KAIC program. Our sponsors encompass a wide array of Kentucky businesses and institutions, including leaders in energy, technology, manufacturing, and more.
