Paul Everitt, Chief Executive at ADS Group commented: “November was another good month for the UK aerospace industry with 132 new aircraft delivered, up by 12% on the same month a year earlier.

“The strong order book translates into long-term high-skill, high value employment across the country. UK Government support for industrial strategies is encouraging investment in skills, R&D and productivity, helping UK companies to compete successfully in tough international markets.”

In total, the 1,265 new aircraft delivered by industry in 2015 is worth up to £21.5bn to the UK aerospace industry.
