Spain is gaining in stature as one of Europe's premier aerospace nations, thanks to investment by EADS in its Airbus and Eurocopter facilities and successful efforts to create a strong supply chain, specialising in aerostructures.

In addition to TAI, other local partners on the modification programme include Aselsan, Havelsan and Milsoft, says Thales. Dec 5, 2008
