Gov. Sam Brownback plans to lead a Kansas delegation to an international air show in Paris next week to promote the state's aircraft industry.

The governor's office says Brownback and state Commerce Secretary Pat George expect to spend a week in Paris, starting Monday.

They'll be joined by representatives of the Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition and several Kansas-based aviation businesses. Wichita is an aviation hub, and the state has more than 30,000 aviation workers and 200 industry suppliers.

Brownback also is touting the state's tax climate as attractive to aviation. The Republican governor has pushed over the past two years to decrease personal income taxes.

Kansas had nearly $12 billion in exports last year, with aircraft sales topping $2 billion.
