Aero Engineering at Advanced Engineering

Aero Engineering is the UK’s only event 100% - dedicated to aero R&D, design, test, inspection, production & assembly. Addressing structures, propulsion and systems, it brings together global OEMs and top tier manufacturers to source from all levels of the engineering supply chain. Supported by ADS, NATEP, and all regional associations, Aero Engineering additionally brings some of the latest innovations and case studies to the show floor.

Aero Engineering

The UK’s aerospace industry is making a major contribution to continued growth and prosperity in every part of the country, setting an example to follow in boosting productivity and competing successfully around the world.

The aerospace sector directly employs 120,000 people in the UK, delivering high value jobs for a highly skilled workforce, and supports a further 118,000 jobs indirectly. With production rates rising around the world, UK aerospace output has grown by over 39 per cent since 2011, with annual turnover now reaching nearly £35bn (Source ADS 2018)

Covering manufacturing, R&D, materials and new and advanced technologies to name just a few, Aero Engineering presents the ultimate opportunity for the industry to gather and work together on further improving processes, innovation and supply chain competitiveness.
