DavidThe President's Heartbeat Message

16th August 2016

Today I was briefed on plans for a new rotary-wing aerospace technology facility in Yeovil. If approved, iAero will be located on the SW corner of Westland airfield; strengthening Yeovil's reputation as an aerospace hub, and provide employment for up to 130 people. I'm extremely excited about the whole project, which will attract investment and encourage skilled people to stay in Yeovil, which is important, with an unclear future for helicopter design & assembly skills at the Agusta-Westland site. Although the new iAero facility will be aerospace-specific, there will undoubtedly be crossover opportunities with other high-tech businesses, particularly those at the nearby Yeovil Innovation Centre. This optimally-located facility will enable aerospace R&D businesses to 'live-test' their kit on helicopters at a working airfield, with easy road access to and from the A303. There are only positives to this project which has an emphatic green light from me. View the plans at www.iaeroyeovil.co.uk
