Seville, European Capital of Aerospace sector

Seville will fly high in 2019, the year in which it will be the European Capital of the Aerospace Sector. The Sevillian aeronautical pole, along with that of the central zone (Madrid, Getafe, Toledo ...) is the most important in Spain, areas in which the sector has important manufacturers in the industry, from Airbus, Tier 1 and Tier 2 , such as Carbures, which is present with different plants in both poles.

The appointment of Seville as European Aeronautical capital is a clear recognition of this city and will allow it to promote training programs in the sector, collaboration agreements with other cities and opportunities for attracting investments. In 2015, the City of Seville presented its candidacy as European Capital of the aerospace sector. On 4 October, Juan Espadas, mayor of Seville, confirmed that the city had finally been chosen from numerous European capitals and cities.

This capital is defended by the Ariane network, composed of all European cities, agencies and companies in the aerospace sector, which is a "framework for promoting joint programs and projects". Only two Spanish cities had been the capitals of the aerospace industry, Barcelona and Madrid. Now Seville joins the list of cities that have received that title, which currently boasts Toulouse.

The aerospace industry accounts for 1.6 percent of Andalusia's GDP and has created 700 new jobs in the last year. Carbures has offices in Aeropolis tech park where the company Defense and Systems area is concentrated with almost 300 engineers, much gray matter dedicated to the development of high technology systems and equipment like Airbus MRTT flight control stick or to think about how to improve the ratios of efficiency of aircrafts through the use of composites, among other materials. Therefore, Carbures is located in the heart of Seville as the aeronautical capital. Something we are proud of and motivate us to host as our European colleagues
