Did you catch the article in the Everett Herald a few days ago?
Snohomish County officials as well as Governor Jay Inslee are making strides toward keeping Boeing local. On the heels of Allegiant Air's refusal to pay their own way for commercial service out of Paine Field, the powers that be are talking about preparing an industrial site just south of the burgeoning Dreamlifter operations center to try and entice Boeing to assemble their new 777X in Everett. South Carolina has proven their commitment to aerospace in general and Boeing in particular recently with their promise to give the aerospace giant $120 million in state incentives in exchange for 2,000 new jobs and a $1 billion investment in the area. Washington officials are looking to stay competitive and keep Boeing here by discussing the possibility of sinking $8 million into developing an industrial pad with access to the main runway at Paine Field that the new 777X composite wing could be built on. This is a step in the right direction which fits Paine Field's business model of supporting Aerospace and general aviation over commercial flight.
Continue to let your elected officials know you support Aerospace and general aviation at Paine Field, and that scheduled commercial flights is a non-compatible use.
