DFW Regional Aerospace Consortium

Since 2003, Bell Helicopter, Lockheed Martin and Triumph Aerostructures – Vought Aircraft Division have led the Aerospace Consortium. The companies have been instrumental in the creation of the “Gotta Jet?” career awareness program for students and their parents as well as the development of a common entry-level training program for future employees. With the support of the Arlington and Fort Worth Chambers, Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County, the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center and Hillwood Properties, the Consortium continues to make important contributions to the North Texas region. As one of the key industries for the region, aerospace manufacturing employs workers in over 75 companies, and promotion and training programs developed by the Aerospace Consortium will ensure that there is a pipeline of future employees for years to come.

The DFW Regional Aerospace Consortium, managed by Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County has developed an Aerospace gaming application for smart phones and devices.  The consortium is working with our regional academic partner, University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), to develop the game and in partnership with the North Central Texas Council of Governments. 

FLYBY was designed to generate interest in Aerospace and Aviation careers for elementary, middle, and high school students in an effort to build the local talent pipeline for future employment opportunities. The game features aircraft from local Aerospace companies – Lockheed Martin’s F35 and C130J, Bell Helicopter’s V-280, and Airbus Helicopter’s H155 and EC255.

 Players will compete in challenging levels, overcoming obstacles and unlocking various aircraft by collecting parts to that specific vehicle.  Each level will include Aerospace and Aviation trivia questions for players to answer and collect points. The online stat board will be displayed on NCTaviationcareers.com.
