The very first Utah built horizontal stabilizer for the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is on its way to final assembly. The event is a major milestone in the expansion of Boeing’s manufacturing capabilities in the state.

Utah high school students will soon be able to graduate with a certificate in aerospace manufacturing thanks to a new program called the Utah Aerospace Pathways Program.


Boeing has selected a Salt Lake City manufacturing plant to produce the composite fiber frame for the 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Utah is now home to one of the fastest light business jets in the world. SyberJet Aircraft announced this week that it has selected Cedar City as the location for its headquarters and the new SJ30 assembly plant. SyberJet Aircraft President Chuck Taylor says the new seven-seat SJ30 will be assembled from start to finish in Utah. 

“We’ll be starting from the bottom up, and we’ll be manufacturing the detail parts, assembling the airplane, putting all the aircraft systems in the airplane, and flying it off the Cedar City Airport and delivering it to our customers,” Taylor says.
