OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Adam Aircraft Incorporated might relocate its assembly headquarters from Colorado to Ogden-Hinckley Airport.

But first, the city and state would have to offset $12.5 million in relocation costs.

City officials say the move would bring in nearly 700 jobs to Ogden by 2013, resulting in nearly a $9 million financial investment by the company.

The company says it is leaning toward relocating all of its assembly operations for the A-700 Adam Jet and A-500 twin-engine piston aircraft to Ogden because of Utah's friendly business climate and skilled work force. However, negotiations are continuing. The state and Adam Aircraft officials plan to meet with Gov. Jon Huntsman in mid-October.
