Over the next year, Advanced Aero Services (AAS) will be bringing lots of great paying jobs to the Shreveport Regional Airport.  According to KADN, the airplane specialists will be bringing a state-of-the-art aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul facility to Shreveport as the first step in a master plan that will eventually employ over 100 people by this time next year.

Reportedly, 60 direct jobs with AAS will offer an average annual salary of $49,600, plus benefits.  77 indirect jobs are also expected to be a part of the employment windfall hitting the Shreveport area by 2021.  The company is also planning to build additional facilities that will "substantially" increase those job numbers and the services offered at Shreveport Regional.

By 2024 the company hopes to bring as many as 500 jobs to the area - with 1,000 jobs later in the decade.  Hiring for the project is expected to begin by late February or early March.
