Bombardier – Bombardier is a plane and train manufacturer. From private jets to commercial airlines, travel is made possible by Bombardier. Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Bombardier’s customer service branch is located in Tucson, Arizona.
CAE – CAE’s claim to fame in the aerospace industry is its simulator-based training program for regional, business and civil helicopter operators. CAE has a training center at Arizona State University’s downtown campus in Phoenix.

According to an article published in the May-June issue of mylife MAGAZINE, Arizona exported a number of air and spacecraft parts, valued at nearly $326 million, to Canada in 2012. The A&D trade industry between Canada and Arizona, therefore, has a huge economic impact in Arizona.
