DALEVILLE-- Earlier this month, Airbus Helicopters signed a contract to lease executive office space in the former main location of the Army Aviation Center Federal Credit Union.
The building is located on Daleville Ave. in Daleville. They will moved into these office spaces on September 1st, which is close proximity to Fort Rucker.
Airbus Helicopters manufactures the UH-72A Lakota which is used by the Army.
It is unclear if they will employ their current staff, or hire from the area. Either way, those involved in the project said it will benefit the Daleville Community.
"Whether they bring new personnel in to man the offices, or they hire local people, either way it will be a boost to the Daleville economy," Kenny Whatley of Whatley Darty Real Estate said.
