Armstrong told more than 500 people at the grand opening Tuesday of FlightSafety’s $42 million, 375,000-square-feet flight simulator manufacturing facility in Broken Arrow that he expects a strong return on the company’s value proposition.
“We look forward to an exciting future here,” HE said. “We have 684 employees. We have gone from 240,000 square feet (in four Broken Arrow facilities) to 375,000 square feet. There is room for growth here. Our goal is to be the market leader and to support our city, our state and our nation.”
A recovery in the economy should lead to job growth at FlightSafety’s new plant, company executives said, and up to 1,000 people could be working there within a few years, up 46 percent from today’s number.
