Economic Development Cluster ♦ Aerospace and Defense

Kern County's aerospace and defense cluster provides over 23,000 jobs. Aerospace and defense activities are a vital part of the economy in Eastern Kern, and have the potential to contribute more broadly to Kern's overall economy. Kern County has key strengths in aircraft manufacturing, as well as key assets in aviation and aerospace research from defense-related activities at China Lake and Edwards Air Force Base. The cluster also benefits from the number of aerospace contractors and small firms in the County.
