Sierra Nevada’s space plane to create ‘significant’ number of jobs in Brevard County (by Alex Soderstrom)

Astronauts soon will leave Florida on a space plane.

Space and defense firm Sierra Nevada Corp. will create Brevard County jobs as it gears up to begin launches and landings in Cape Canaveral in 2022, Executive Vice President of Space Systems Jane Kavandi said during a May 4 press conference. These jobs likely will include high-wage engineering and procurement positions, a space industry expert told Orlando Business Journal. 

Sierra Nevada is one of many commercial space companies bringing jobs to Cape Canaveral. The Space Coast, especially Kennedy Space Center, hosts manufacturing and launch operations overseen by Elon Musk‘s SpaceX, Jeff Bezos‘ Blue Origin, Lockheed Martin, Boeing and OneWeb Satellites.
