Aerospace, Aviation, & Defense

Only minutes from United States Central Command (CENTCOM) and Special Operations Command (SOCOM) headquarters, Pasco County’s robust local initiatives for workforce development, business incentives, infrastructure improvements, and low tax policies have helped Pasco’s aviation and defense contractors TRU Simulation + Training and Pall Aeropower significantly expand their facilities. Recent investments in critical infrastructure and a runway expansion at the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport combined with over 2,000 acres of industrial “Ready Sites” properties provide endless possibilities for growth in Pasco.

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).
