MEAC raises its profile

MIDDLE EAST AEROSPACE CONSORTIUM (MEAC) has been established to develop and maximise opportunities for the industry in this region through networking, collaboration and mutual trade.  Announced at the Dubai Airshow late last year the Dubai-based organisation already has over 50 members.  Essentially a trade organisation MEAC sees its role as a conduit in bringing together the many facets of the aerospace business, and as a supporting agency in dealing with regulatory authorities.  MEAC is headed by John Ellis, an aviation specialist with over 25 years experience in the sector.  Previously he was Business Development Director for the Farnborough Aerospace Consortium (FAC), the UK’s leading regional aerospace trade association, supporting over 900 South East England aviation related businesses.  On 3 March MEAC is hosting a one day symposium in Abu Dhabi at Al Ain International Aviation Academy, supported by a range of major industry companies, essentially to discuss the interaction required as the Middle East pushes forward in aerospace manufacturing terms.  Sponsors include Aeroform, Kuka, MAG Americas and Siemans. www.middleeastaerospace.com
