France is the United States' main trade partner for aerospace products (1st industrial partner, 1st supplier, and 2nd largest customer of the U.S. aerospace industry).1 Other than the United States, France is the only country to have the full range of industrial capabilities and technical knowledge needed to design and build and aircraft or satellite from start to finish.2 This unique relationship has translated into the long-standing business ties between American companies and dozens of French subsidiaries in the Washington State aerospace cluster.

The group is open to any Washington State-based French companies or subsidiaries and any U.S. companies doing or wishing to do business with the French aerospace industry.
