IN a drive to demonstrate its ambitions for growth, the Isle of Man Aerospace Cluster (IOMAC) has been showcasing its design and manufactured solutions at the Farnborough International Air Show.
The show finished on Sunday and the Island display was part of the North West Aerospace Alliance's presence at the event.

Established in 2006, the IOMAC provides a framework for facilitating collaboration between the Island's high-tech and aerospace companies, offering comprehensive and cost-effective solutions for aerospace manufacture. Alongside the Department of Economic Development the companies representing the Cluster at the show were Bladon Jets, Tritec Tools and Target Aerospace.

The Isle of Man Aerospace Cluster (IOMAC) was formed in 2006 by the Isle of Man Government and Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce to provide a formal support structure for the Island's aerospace sector, to move forward in the pursuit of worldwide recognition and world class standards. As a member of the North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA) in the UK, the IOMAC is directly linked to one of Europe's largest, most proactive Aerospace Clusters.

Members of the Cluster have been involved in the manufacture of the largest passenger airliner in the world, the Airbus A380, and Boeing's forthcoming new airliner, the 787. The Cluster is also working on the Joint Strike Fighter, Eurofighter Typhoon, Airbus A400M military transporter and Astute Submarine programmes.
