Aviation & Aerospace

The Northland boasts a proud heritage in aerospace and aviation. The hub of that activity is in Duluth, but every county hosts either a general aviation facility or, in the cases of Duluth, Hibbing/Chisholm, and International Falls, a fully functional commercial airport.

Duluth's aviation cluster hosts airplane manufacturing, aircraft maintenance and repair, and nearly two dozen businesses that supply these anchors. Its local community college has a flight school and aircraft parts programs that build off of the industry’s appetite for innovation.

The Northland continues to advance and preserve its rich history of aviation through a growing array of businesses.
