£400 million funding to the UK aerospace sector

Aerospace is very important to my constituency and I therefore welcome the government’s announcement of a further £400 million of public and private sector funding to pay for cutting-edge aerospace research and development projects.

Aerospace jobs and supply chains across the UK will benefit from cutting-edge research and development projects announced today by the government and aerospace industry leaders.

Projects include developing high-performance engines, new wing designs, and ultra-lightweight materials to reduce fuel consumption.

The new FlyZero initiative will bring together 100 experts to kickstart work into zero-emission aircraft technology, with the aim of securing future manufacturing in the UK.

This is great news for not only the industry as a whole but to many local businesses in the sector.
