Governor Sam Brownback is leading a trade delegation to the Paris Air Show this week. The trip to France is aimed at attracting aviation business to Kansas and drumming up sales for the aircraft industry in the state. Brownback says trips like this are a good opportunity to meet with top executives of aviation companies.
Brownback says he believes an airshow visit last year will lead to a new product line being brought to Wichita. The delegation headed to France includes economic development officials from the Wichita area and representatives of aircraft-related businesses in Kansas.
