Eagle editorial: Make case for Air Capital

Boeing is going, Hawker Beechcraft is going through bankruptcy, and Kansas lost a shocking 21.7 percent of its aerospace employment between 2007 and 2011. But Wichita saw aircraft manufacturing grow by 8.3 percent, or 2,400 jobs, over the past year, and it remains an unparalleled place to engineer and manufacture aircraft. Rather than fret about recent setbacks, leaders must step up their selling of the Air Capital of the World and its assets to industry, and especially to companies that supply aircraft parts.
