Aerospace

The Czech Republic has a long aviation tradition dating back to the early 20th century and has always had a strong presence in the sector. Over the years, the country has made a name for itself based on outstanding quality, reliability and innovation in the industry. From basic production to final aircraft assembly and cutting-edge R&D programmes, the local aerospace industry has progressed significantly and simply cannot be overlooked.

The Czech aerospace industry has undoubtedly advanced to the level of global competitiveness in terms of quality and innovation while maintaining some of the advantages of an emerging market for investors. Companies such as Honeywell and GE Aviation, among others, have taken advantage of that while expanding their businesses. Join the world’s elite and invest in the Czech Republic!

The aerospace industry is now largely based on sharing knowledge and experience with partners at the national and international levels. Unique research teams work within the industry and academia. Public-private cooperation has been a key activity in the R&D area, thanks to which specialised university centres have become involved in high-value-added projects. Knowledge and innovation are among the most important factors in remaining competitive at the global level and being able to advance further.
