Yuma Airport's Defense Contractor Complex (DCC) is America's newest and fastest growing defense aviation park. Launched in January 2009, the 120 acre park attracts companies from Boeing to General Electric. The unprecedented early success of the DCC demonstrates the Airport's potential as a world-class center for the aviation industry and confirms Yuma's DCC role in developing the city’s Defense based economy.

We offer a combined package of first-class accommodation and business support, right next door to the region’s Defense Installations., U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground and Marine Corps Air Station,Yuma.

That adds up to near perfect testing and contractor support conditions!
