The Aerospace Committee is a group established by the French-American Chamber of Commerce of the Pacific Northwest region. The group is open to any Washington State-based French company/subsidiary and any US company doing or wishing to do business with the French aerospace industry.
This initiative builds on the strong and long-lasting relationship between French and US companies located in the region to create a network of aerospace firms sharing common interests as trade partners.
