(Ogden-AP) -- An aircraft developer has chosen Ogden over sites in Kentucky and Texas as home for a plant that could eventually employ 500 people.

The plant for Colorado-based Adam Aircraft will be built in an existing hangar. It's expected to open by the end of the year.

Within three years, it could be in an 80-thousand-square-foot production facility, where 500 workers would assemble a new generation of commercial aircraft.

State economic development officials described the jobs as "high-paying," but did not give a range for them.

The company says Ogden won the plant in part because of its proximity to Hill Air Force Base, which has spawned a skilled aerospace work force.
