    Nicknamed the City of Angels, Los Angeles is a world center of business, international trade, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, sports, technology, and education. Southern California is the largest aerospace industry base in the United States. With NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards Air Force Base, Naval Air Warfare Center, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems’ assembly and checkout facilities, Southern California Logistics Airport, and major plants operated by Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman, it is the perfect location for AVIATION 2013! Not to mention the fact that Los Angeles County businesses generate 42% of California’s $27 billion in aerospace revenue, that California is likely to host a test site for commercial unmanned aerial vehicles by 2015, and that Caltech, USC, and California State University–Los Angeles prepare some of the brightest minds for work in aerospace.
