Aviation maintenance and manufacturing is growing in several locations throughout the United States, with one state in particular expected to see growth of as much as 40 percent through the year 2020.

In Duluth, Minnesota, AAR Aircraft Services has announced plans to hire 40 workers in the immediate future, according to NBC KARE 11. In addition, the news source says the region's aviation sector, which also contains two airplane manufacturers in addition to AAR's maintenance work, has been predicted to see growth of 40 percent through the end of the decade.

In another KARE article, small airplane manufacturer Cirrus Design was reported to be hiring 100 people in the next twelve months, while another plane builder named Kestrel in the area plans to add as many as 600 workers to its staff.

Minnesota isn't the only state seeing growth in the aviation sector either. Richmond International Airport in Virginia's is expected to see between 40 and 50 jobs added from an expanded maintenance operation, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The expansion, by ExpressJet Airlines Inc., will have the new positions provide maintenance services for aircrafts from American Eagle, Delta Connection and United Express.
