Vice President, Manufacturing and Safety, Boeing Commercial Airplanes
With headquarters in the Puget Sound region of Washington State, Boeing Commercial Airplanes has operations in more than a dozen cities and countries. Below are three major production facilities.
Safety is the primary consideration when Boeing engineers design an airplane. In addition to meeting regulatory requirements before certification, each airplane model must meet Boeing’s time-proven design standards. Often these standards are more stringent than regulatory requirements. Boeing airplanes are rigorously tested, and the company continually monitors the performance of airplanes worldwide to identify opportunities to improve safety.
Starting an airline is tough. Running a profitable airline is even tougher. From startup airlines to established industry leaders, the process involves constant learning and adaptation.
Few businesses have as many variables and challenges as airlines. They are capital-intensive. Competition is fierce. Airlines are fossil-fuel dependent and often at the mercy of fuel price volatility. Operations are labor intensive and subject to government control and political influence. And a lot depends on the weather.
But, the intrepid entrepreneur is not alone. The StartupBoeing team assists entrepreneurs in launching new airlines. From concept through launch, StartupBoeing offers guidance, review, analysis, data, resources, contacts, and referrals to qualified startup airlines.
