COEUR d'ALENE — When Linda Coppess first heard a proposal to establish the American Aerospace Materials Manufacturing Center in the region, she was all in. 'I got chills. There's no other way to describe it,' the president and CEO of the Coeur d'Alene Regional Chamber said Thursday. Not only is she convinced it could create thousands of skilled, high-paying jobs, but the area could become a key player in the growing aerospace industry. 'I think this could be a game-changer for our region,' she said.
