Global Aeronautica sits adjacent to the Boeing Charleston site and shares a 240-acre campus in North Charleston, S.C.

Boeing acquired Alenia North America's half of Global Aeronautica LLC, a North Charleston, S.C.-based fuselage subassembly facility for Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, becoming the entity’s sole owner. Global Aeronautica began in 2004 when Alenia North America and Vought Aircraft Industries formed a 50-50 joint venture in support of the Dreamliner. In 2008, Boeing purchased Vought's interest in the company, making it a 50:50 joint venture between Alenia North America and Boeing. Global Aeronautica's integration work entails the joining of the mid-fuselage sections, the installation and testing of associated elements, and the application of surface finishes to more than 60% of the 787's fuselage.
