Aviation Cluster Strategic Plan

Central Florida Regional Planning Council (CFRPC), FL

The Central Florida Regional Planning Council (CFRPC) serves five counties and six airports in central Florida. The CFRPC retained Explorer Solutions to prepare the Strategic Plan and Feasibility Study to develop aerospace and aviation clusters. The study's objectives were to identify assets and opportunities, build on those assets while creating a collaborative network to support the growth of this global industry, and bring its economic and employment benefits to the region. The Strategic Plan was needed to formally encourage and grow the Aviation and associated industries, including aerospace and logistics, to prepare the Central Florida region for its future as a hub of a globally competitive network that will provide long-term economic development and talent pipeline resiliency.
