Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems.

Boeing supports airlines and U.S. and allied government customers in more than 150 countries.

Our products and tailored services include commercial and military aircraft, satellites, weapons, electronic and defense systems, launch systems, advanced information and communication systems, and performance-based logistics and training.

With corporate offices in Chicago, Boeing employs more than 160,000 people across the United States and in more than 65 countries.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes reported record revenue of $66 billion in 2015 fueled by an industry- record 762 deliveries that extended our global market-share lead for a fourth consecutive year.

By capturing an additional 768 net new airplane orders valued at $57 billion, we held our record unit backlog at nearly 5,800 airplanes worth some $432 billion; that’s approximately seven years of production at current rates.

Full-year operating margins were 7.8 percent.

Boeing had another strong year in 2015 with solid revenue, healthy margins and progress on numerous key milestones.

Revenues totaled $30.4 billion, and operating margins grew to 10.8 percent.

We delivered 186 aircraft, along with 15,787 weapons systems and four satellites.

New orders reached $27 billion, resulting in a solid year-end backlog of $58 billion. International customers represented roughly one-third of revenue.


Revenues in millions



2017 Target:

0% absolute growth - water intake, greenhouse gas, and solid waste.

0% revenue-adjusted growth - hazardous waste


"Over the past 100 years, generations of talented Boeing employees helped build the world’s largest aerospace company and shaped the course of history with amazing innovations along the way. In that time, human beings went from walking on Earth to walking on the moon, and from riding horses to flying jet airplanes and spaceships. With each decade, aerospace technology crossed another frontier, and with each crossing, the world changed".

"With an installed base of more than 12,000 commercial airplanes in operation today, we connect people, products and ideas like never before."



Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner

Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner system is on a course to return human launch capabilities to the United States. The spacecraft will safely carry a mix of crew and cargo to the International Space Station and other low Earth orbit destinations.


NASA’s Space Launch System

America’s heavy-lift rocket, NASA’s Space Launch System, will power humankind into deep space by launching larger payloads farther into our solar system, faster than ever before possible, to enable exploration, science and security missions


Echo Seeker

Almost three quarters of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, with areas that remain unexplored. Boeing’s fully autonomous Echo Seeker unmanned underwater vehicle is designed to explore ocean depths to 20,000 feet and operate for 50 to 75 hours.


Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner

The all-electric 702SP satellite is powered by enough inert, non-hazardous xenon to extend its operations beyond the expected 15-year design life. Its patented stacked- configuration capability helps customers share launch costs.
