On Tuesday (June 11, 2024), Boeing announced that they will open a new engineering facility at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida.  Expected to open in fall 2024, the new facility will be located within the university’s Cici & Hyatt Brown Center for Aerospace Technology.  This year, Boeing will begin hiring for approximately 200 engineering positions to support the new facility, with plans to double that number over the next few years.  Initial plans for the new engineering location call for Boeing employees to perform engineering work for military aircraft programs and advanced technology capabilities, with a focus on engineering design, research, development and prototyping capabilities.

In Tuesday’s announcement, Boeing Air Dominance’s Vice President and General Manager, Steve Nordlund, said,

“Expanding both our footprint in Florida and partnership with Embry-Riddle will accelerate innovation across our combat aircraft programs.  We expect this location to be attractive to not only Embry-Riddle graduates, but also to established aerospace engineers from across Florida and around the nation.” 

Also commenting on the addition of the new engineering facility, Embry-Riddle’s Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Mori Hosseini, added,

“Today is a momentous day — not just for Embry-Riddle or for the city of Daytona Beach, but for all of Florida.  Four hundred people and their loved ones will live and work here, invest in our local economy and, more broadly, in the future of aviation and aerospace.  It’s an incredible impact, and it wouldn’t have been possible without Cici and Hyatt Brown.”

Embry-Riddle’s Center for Aerospace technology is part of the university’s Research Park, where students are paired with established companies across aviation, aerospace, cybersecurity, commercial space and other STEM-related fields.  Construction of Boeing’s new 65,000 square-foot facility, including a 40,000 square-foot hangar, began in 2022 and is scheduled to be completed this fall.  Boeing Daytona Beach is expected to be operational by late fall 2024.
