Carrier Spending by State
The map below depicts the national vendor base for aircraft carriers. It includes purchase orders issued by Newport News Shipbuilding over the past seven years - roughly the amount of time needed to construct a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. Over that time NNS has placed purchase orders with nearly 1,600 vendors worth over $3 billion that directly support local economies in over 330 Congressional Districts nationwide. As the map demonstrates, stability in aircraft carrier programs is critical not only to our national security but to our shipbuilding industrial base as well.
