MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - At the Airbus ground breaking event held on Monday, April 8,, eighth grader Victoria Corob expressed a dream of one day touching the sky.
Corob spoke at Monday's ceremony, representing the future of the Gulf Coast and the future of America as the now-international airplane manufacturing company prepared for its future in Mobile.
She hopes to work as an engineer one day, and says she could see herself working with Airbus.
After her speech, the CEO's of JetBlue Airways, EADS and Airbus all extended her a job offer.
"Is been amazing it's unreal," Corob said.
She hopes to follow in her grandfather's footsteps; she wants to be an engineer.
"Anything can happen. We are the next generation. If we all just work hard, we are all going to come out strong and hopefully achieve all of our dreams," said Corob.
And for those who dream of working for Airbus, AIDT officials say plans are already underway to build a training center on Brookley Field.
The Alabama Aviation Training Center is going to be specifically for Airbus to get it up and running and fully staffed. The design is almost complete and should be fully operational by May of 2014.
"We've been planning on getting ready for the selection recruitment and training of the work force," said AIDT assistant director, Lee Hammett.
There are currently AIDT jobs listed available online.
Hammett said the design for the Alabama Aviation training center is nearly complete.
