We're Thankful for Business Openings Around the State!

This Thanksgiving holiday week, we're thankful that the latest issue of Around the State business announcements includes these openings:
  • Aero Air, a Hillsboro aviation company, will take over Redmond-based Butler Aircraft Co.'s hangar lease at the Madras Municipal Airport and use it as a base of operations for aerial firefighting. Thirty-six to 60 mechanic jobs could be added as it gets ready for next year's fire season. The lease runs through 2015, but can be extended until 2030. The Bulletin, 11/14/2012
