The Southern California Aerospace Council has launched the inaugural “Southern California Aerospace Days” meant to highlight the aerospace and defense industry’s vital economic impact on our regional economy.

With more than 400 active participants from industry, labor, government, not-for-profit and education, the SCAC exits to defend Southern California’s status as the aerospace capitol of the world, protecting and strengthening aerospace and defense industries, firms, suppliers and workers currently present in our region, as well as positioning the Southern California mega-region to be the world’s hub for emerging sectors, technologies and occupations that will drive the industry in the future.
