Aerospace, Aviation, & Defense

Florida is home to the birthplace of commercial aviation and is the transport hub for the Americas. As the gateway to southwest Florida, Pasco County benefits from close proximity to MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa International Airport, and Port Tampa Bay. This industry has grown by 25.48% over the past five years and 300 jobs will come available over the next three years.

If you’re curious about space exploration; want to hone your skills in aircraft maintenance, repair, operations, or simulation; or wish to put your critical thinking and analytical abilities to the test in cyber security and intelligence, explore a career path in aviation – a field where all lines of work are experiencing annual growth (nearly 2% for Computer and Information Systems Managers).
