Airbus has been a fixture in the city of Mobile for fourteen years. During that time the partnership with the city, the community, and the workforce has grown and evolved into something all parties are proud of. Airbus' recent announcement of their new workforce development plan called FlightPath9 takes talented high school kids and gets them hands-on experience in the field of airplane assembly. Upon completion, the students are then immediately enrolled into Airbus' Fast Track training program and, upon completion of Fast Track, they're full fledged Airbus employees. Airbus struggled to find the workforce they needed so they've created their own. It's a story of strong will and workforce innovation.
