We start with the Aerospace industry and the news that the UK has been ranked the 4th most investible country in the world for the Aerospace industry, despite the uncertainty of Brexit.
Continuing with news from the aerospace sector, the UK has seen a record number of wide-body aircraft being manufactured.
Our last story on Aerospace is that the government has announced a £300m “Future Flight Challenge” to enhance R&D looking for new ways to fly passengers around the world. New technologies such as electric planes and urban flights.
