Leonardo DRS considered 143 cities and finally chose Tuskegee as the place where the T-100 training fighter jet will be assembled. The company will build a $300 million manufacturing facility at Moton Field creating construction jobs. Also, 750 employees will be needed for other positions.
However, Leonardo DRS is competing for this U.S. Air Force contract and we are all waiting for the decision that will come later this year.
Leonardo DRS has some strong advantages. The T-100 is a proven trainer jet for military pilots in several countries. And Leonardo DRS is honoring the Tuskegee Airmen by locating the manufacturing facility at Moton Field.
As someone who wants this project in Tuskegee, please respond to this call to action.
