WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – member of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Aviation and Space; and Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense – attended the 53rd International Paris Air Show Le Bourget with Kansas aviation leaders, where he highlighted the Air Capital of the World’s contributions to aviation on a global stage.
“The aerospace industry is where a strong national defense and a strong economy converge, and nowhere is that more evident than in Kansas,” said Sen. Moran. “For nearly 100 years, Kansans have promoted and embodied a culture of innovation in aerospace, which is more imperative today than ever before. Aerospace innovation and growth in Kansas not only improve the lives of Kansans but reverberate across the aerospace industry as a whole. I was pleased to spend time with the world’s leading aerospace companies to promote the innovation and talent that our state can offer them to grow their businesses in Kansas and to build new partnerships. I am proud to represent the Air Capital of the World in the City of Light.”
