Aerospace and defense industry players, take advantage of the Paris Air Show to find out more about the real estate opportunities and measures put in place by the Vaucluse, New Aquitaine and Centre-Val de Loire regions to help your company reach the 7th sky.

As France's third-largest aerospace and defense region, Nouvelle-Aquitaine is home to some of the world's most prestigious companies. From Dassault to Safran, ArianeGroup to Thales, they all contribute to the reputation of the region, which boasts world leadership in helicopter turbines, landing gear, aircraft batteries and high-performance composite materials, as well as being recognized throughout Europe as a bridgehead in the fields of launchers and propulsion, radar and airborne systems, military aircraft... With some 70,000 jobs and 900 industrial establishments - the vast majority of which are SMEs - the region boasts many assets for aerospace professionals looking for a site to develop their business, and is a prime location for innovative projects that contribute to industrial performance through the Factory of the Future and digital transformation.

A leader in New Air Services operated by light aircraft, the Vaucluse département is also a key player in the aeronautics sector. As one of France's top 5 aeronautical clusters, Safe Cluster contributes to the dynamism of an area that has established itself as a veritable testing ground for professionals (and in particular aircraft manufacturers, who have a unique place to test their solutions in real-life conditions on the Pégase aeronautical business park). The only one of its kind, Technopole Pégase Avignon also offers industry professionals and start-ups 500 m² of office space, two 250 m² workshops, four 400 m² hangars... which perfectly complement the 3 runways (paved, grass and ULM/helicopters). In addition to a real estate offer adapted to the needs of aeronautical entrepreneurs, the region also benefits from the strength and complementarity of its network to enrich the value chain and offer avenues of collaboration to start-ups and major groups who have chosen the Vaucluse to develop their business.

More focused on aeronautical subcontracting, the Centre-Val de Loire region will also be present at the SIAE, with some 50 companies on hand to showcase the diversity and multiplicity of skills present in the region. The Paris Air Show will also be an opportunity for the region to showcase the Aérocentre cluster and centre of excellence, which brings together SMEs and major local contractors to promote synergies and contribute to the reputation of its members on a national and international scale. The event will also be an opportunity to put the spotlight on the Cité aéronautique Centre-Val de Loire, as well as the Châteauroux-Centre airport dedicated to freight and aeronautical maintenance. Launched in 2019, this third-location facility is not only a place for exchange, sharing and orientation, but also a site dedicated to training for future employees in the aeronautical sector. Innovative by nature, the region is also involved with startups in the fields of energy transition, and would like to take advantage of the event to meet innovative and committed entrepreneurs in the fields of decarbonation, drones or R&D to discuss with them the opportunities offered by the region.
