Stockton Aviation Research & Technology Park

Project Profile

Project Description

The Stockton Aviation Research Park is the logical evolution of the Research and Technology Activities that occur at the William J. Hughes Technical Center (WJHTC). The mission at the WJHTC has greatly expanded during the period since 9/11 to assure the safe and effective operation of our nation's airport. The Federal Aviation Administration has embarked on a new initiative entitled "NextGen" to transform the land based air traffic control system to a satellite system which will accommodate the expected doubling of air traffic in the next decade. The Stockton Aviation Research Park will provide a suitable research environment literally at the gates of the WJHTC to support this critical mission. Numerous independent analyses have been conducted to affirm the viability of this aviation campus.

Total jobs to be created – minimum 2000 highly paid Engineering/Technical jobs.

Private Investment - $300 million+
