Aerospace

Europe offers exceptional opportunities for U.S. companies in the aerospace sector. And the U.S. Commercial Service has staff throughout Europe dedicated to ensuring your success in your endeavors. Opportunities exist in airport infrastructure, services and upgrades, aviation components, avionics, air traffic control systems, and other areas throughout the sector.

Aerospace & Defense Events

Europe hosts some of the most important trade shows and events for companies supplying the aerospace sector, which U.S. companies targeting the European market must not miss. We identify the top European shows, and then we work with the organizers to provide special added value - such as US Pavilions - for U.S. companies that participate. Commercial Service staff attends the shows, and often provide matchmaking services for U.S. companies.
