Boeing to Open New U.S. Facility for Military Aircraft & Advanced Technology Programs

Boeing is opening a new engineering facility at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, to work on military aircraft programs and advanced technology.

Boeing plans to begin hiring for approximately 200 high-paying engineering jobs this year and forecasts nearly doubling that total over the next few years. Work is expected to span Boeing’s defense and government services portfolios, with a focus on engineering design, research, development and prototyping capabilities.

The Center for Aerospace Technology is part of Embry-Riddle’s Research Park, where students are paired up to collaborate with established companies across aviation, aerospace, cybersecurity, commercial space and many other STEM-related fields.

Construction for the 65,000-square-foot facility, including a 40,000-square-foot hangar, began in 2022 and is scheduled to be completed this fall. Boeing Daytona Beach is expected to be operational by late fall.
