The value of aircraft deliveries to UK industry in Q1 2017 reached a new record of £6.5bn, up a full £1bn from the first quarter of 2016, driven by a 10 per cent rise in deliveries of wide-body aircraft.
ADS Chief Executive Paul Everitt said: "These are welcome announcements, which build on what has already been achieved through Government working in partnership with business on industrial strategy. The aerospace sector is one of the UK’s biggest manufacturing success stories and plays a vital part in our continued prosperity."
The UK’s future economic success depends on an industrial strategy that delivers radical improvements in innovation and focusses on high value design, ADS says today.

“The UK’s high value aerospace, defence, space & security industries need the Government and its EU partners to agree an ambitious and comprehensive trading relationship.
The UK aerospace industry continued its solid start to 2017, figured released today show, recording deliveries of 100 aircraft with a value of up to £2bn to the UK economy.
