State Senator Lisa Brown (D-Spokane), Majority Leader of the Senate is leading the state delegation to the 47th Paris Air Show. The June 18-19 event is held annually and Governor Chris Gregoire tapped the Spokane democrat to lead this year’s Washington contingent, which also includes Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon.
Washington State is home to the largest number of aerospace firms in the world and the Paris Air Show is the gala international event for the aerospace industry. Joining Brown will be representatives from a variety of aerospace companies in Washington as well as leaders from several community and technical colleges which are part of the state’s aviation training Air Consortium.
