Revving up the industry.

Revving Up The Industry

Reports from Adams Field indicate that people are anxious to see if the Garrett General Aviation Services Division is going to open shop in Little Rock.

While the deal isn't done yet, Garrett is looking to start out with four employees, eventually working up to about 20. Both the Arkansas Modification Center and Falcon Jet use Garrett engines, but Garrett's location at Adams Field may have even greater ramifications.

The airport represents a nucleus of businesses such as Arkansas Mod and Falcon that consume services, such as what Garrett offers, and would be very receptive to others -- effectively allowing an industrial park to grow around the aviation industry.
