Boeing Gears Up in Florida with New Engineering Hub

Aerospace giant Boeing is expanding its footprint in Florida, announcing the opening of a brand new engineering facility at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach. This strategic partnership, solidified in June 2024, will not only benefit Boeing's development efforts but also create a hub for innovation and high-tech jobs in the Sunshine State.


The centerpiece of this collaboration is the Cici and Hyatt Brown Center for Aerospace Technology, a state-of-the-art facility currently under construction on Embry-Riddle's campus. Upon completion this fall, Boeing will lease the entire 65,000-square-foot complex, which includes a dedicated 40,000-square-foot hangar. The focus of Boeing Daytona Beach will be on engineering for the company's defense and government services sectors. This encompasses a wide range of projects, from cutting-edge military aircraft to advanced technological capabilities. The facility will house engineers working on design, research, development, and prototyping, fostering a dynamic environment for pushing the boundaries of aerospace engineering.


This move is a boon for both Boeing and Florida. The company gains access to a pool of talented engineers graduating from Embry-Riddle, a university renowned for its aerospace programs.  Boeing has ambitious hiring plans, aiming to recruit nearly 200 engineers this year with the potential to double that number in the coming years. This significant job creation will bring a wave of highly skilled professionals and their families to Florida, boosting the local economy.


The partnership extends beyond just filling positions. The co-location at Embry-Riddle's Research Park fosters a collaborative spirit. Boeing engineers will have the opportunity to work alongside university researchers and students, creating a vibrant ecosystem of knowledge-sharing and innovation. This bodes well for the future of aerospace development in Florida, potentially leading to groundbreaking advancements in the field. The opening of Boeing Daytona Beach signifies a new chapter for Florida's aerospace industry.  This strategic collaboration not only creates high-paying jobs but also positions the state as a hub for cutting-edge engineering in the years to come. With Boeing's expertise and Embry-Riddle's academic prowess combined, the sky truly is the limit for what this partnership can achieve.
