The hope for hundreds of new jobs in Berlin making aircraft parts has apparently evaporated. NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.
Last year a new start-up company called Kestrel Aircraft said it was considering building parts in Berlin.
CEO Alan Klapmeier said the plant might be located next to the new biomass plant.
It would use heat from that facility to produce high-tech, composite bodies for the new plane.
That would mean at least 150 to 200 jobs, Klapmeier said.
The six-to-eight passenger plane would be assembled nearby in Maine.
