Aerospace Success Stories
From manufacturing resources and capabilities to talent, Michigan offers everything you need to make your aerospace business soar. We’re a leader in materials R&D with Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow (LIFT) and the Institute for Advanced Composite Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI). Plus, we have the largest concentration of electrical, mechanical and industrial engineers in the nation.
Michigan is also home to the Unmanned Aerial Systems Consortium (MUASC), supporting the development of Unmanned Aerial Systems through coordinated services, access to unique airspace and diverse geography. Experience the same prioritized FAA approval processes as the seven FAA UAS Test Sites when flying in Michigan. MUASC will coordinate the access you need to test your platform faster and more effectively in the state.
In addition, Michigan’s business climate is one of the most favorable in the Midwest. We eliminated personal property tax, which significantly reduces costs for companies that have expensive capital investments in equipment. And we’re consistently ranked among the top 10 states for major new and expanding facilities. In fact, about two-thirds of all Michigan businesses would recommend our state as a place to start a business.
Living in Michigan
Michigan’s attractive business climate is surpassed only by its natural beauty and active lifestyle. With four seasons, 11,000 lakes and the country’s longest freshwater coastline, Michigan offers ample opportunities to enjoy recreational activities like boating, fishing, golf, skiing, hiking and more. Michigan is also home to the highly regarded Detroit Institute of Arts, over 100 wineries, and is a craft beer destination. We also have the lowest cost of living of any state in the Midwest. When it comes to living and doing business, nothing compares to Pure Michigan.Learn more
