Representatives from the Isle of Man Aerospace Cluster (IOMAC) recently held their 14th Forum, with a variety of high calibre speakers updating them on latest industry developments.

Speakers at the event included: Martin Wright, CEO of the North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA), of which the Cluster forms a part; specialist consultant, Clive Lewis; David Vellupillai, Marketing Director, Corporate Jets, for Airbus; and NASA astronaut Nicole Stott.

Minister for Economic Development, Allan Bell, commented: "I'm delighted to see that the Forums are continuing to attract such high quality speakers. The Isle of Man Aerospace Cluster has been one of our success stories over the past few years and my Department is focussed on continually developing this area of the economy. Coupled with our existing global blue-chip client base, it means we should be well-placed to help service the expected significant growth in commercial aircraft over the next few years."

Department member with responsibility for manufacturing, Alex Downie, added: "July was a busy month for aerospace-related activity with the Cluster Forum occurring the same week as the very successful aviation conference where the Aerospace Cluster was highlighted as a great example of how the department works in tandem with industry to drive business to the island."

Adrian Moore, Chairman of the Cluster, concluded: "We see real value from holding these quarterly forums and they continue to be effective in ensuring that Cluster Members are kept right up to date with what is going on in their industry, as well as providing an opportunity for members to meet."
