Sector Position

Austrian aircraft manufacturing history dates back to the 1900s, when Etrich started to develop planes like the “Etrich Taube” and Wiener Neustadt became the first airfield and aircraft production site in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In the last 25 years, the Austrian Aeronautics/Supply/Industry was able to build on this tradition and its key values such as productivity, quality and reliability – boosting its annual turnover from 30 M€ in 1988 to over 1.500 M€.
