Valdosta - New jobs are coming to south Georgia. An aircraft manufacturer announced Thursday that it will soon set up shop in Valdosta.

True Flight Aerospace is the builder of the Tiger Aircraft, a popular four seater plane. They will now call Valdosta home.

The company just acquired 14 acres of land at the Valdosta Airport to build a new 60,000 foot facility which they hope will create several hundred new jobs in the community.

"We expect to initially hire 20-25 employees, probably 70 employees by the end of the first year, and by the end of the third year, we expect to be up to 150-200 employees," says True Flight CEO Kevin Lancester.

True Flights has rented a space at the airport and hope work will begin in their new facility by the beginning of 2008.
