In this report to the President of the European Commission, the European Advisory Group on Aerospace argues that a flourishing and competitive aerospace industry is essential to ensuring a secure and prosperous Europe. The report notes that while some progress has already been made in a number of areas, the current political and regulatory framework is insufficient to bridge the gap between Europe’s ambitions and the capacity to deliver the required results. The main recommendations of STAR 21 cover world markets, the operating environment, governance of civil aviation, European security and defence, and space capabilities.

The European Commission has invited the widest possible response to the report, which took 12 months to compile and drew on input from policymakers (including five Commissioners) and business leaders in the aerospace sector.
