Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

Vision

Association of companies from the area of aircraft industry and creation of a comprehensive offer of research and development activities as well as production capabilities (airframe design, avionics, composite materials)

Ensurance of a stronger position of individual companies at gaining orders and enhancement of  the cooperation with foreign partners

Strategic pillars

Innovations – extension of existing know-how in new areas – e.g. composites, UAV

Education – in cooperation with universities it is needed to educate more specialists for local aircraft companies

Finances – getting sources from European and Czech governmental programs and also from  private sources to secure financial means for research and development programs

Marketing – joint gaining key partners

Current activities

Development and production of the aircraft family for 2-4, 8-14 and 14-20 passengers in commuter, normal, LSA, UL and UAV categories, including all accessories, systems and avionics

BEAWARE

Bridging East West for Aerospace Research

The BEAWARE consortium connects leading aerospace clusters and support organisations in Western Europe (France, Germany, United Kingdom, Spain and Italy) with quickly evolving aerospace clusters and strongholds in Eastern Europe (Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Baltic States). Thus, the BEAWARE project creates the necessary conditions for utilizing the existing and emerging potential in the field of Aeronautics and Air Transport for a continuous and sustainable contribution in European aerospace programmes and projects.

To achieve maximum results and extend the duration of expected impacts, the BEAWARE project strives towards an ideal state, where an evolvement of new partnerships between aerospace actors from Eastern and Western European countries will not depend on additional EU financing as a main prerequisite to start their collaborative projects in the field of Aeronautics and Air Transport.

Promotion
Success Story / Achievements: 

The member organizations of the Moravian Aircraft Cluster are involved in a number of research and development projects. Many of these projects are financed from the European Union funds for science and research (BEAWARE project) or from the funds of the Czech Ministry of Industry and Trade for development support (MOSTA project). 

Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 
  • Responsibility for excellent quality of the final products
  • Involvement in reliability and on-time deliveries
  • Integration skills based on extensive technology insight and experience 
  • Skilled and qualified teams 
  • High flexibility and patience for flying
