The West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF) is a membership trade association that champions and supports the interests of the aerospace and defence industry in the South West of England.
The forum leads the sector in delivering national supply chain initiatives, which connect the SME community to the Primes. WEAF collaborates with partners like UKTI to provide critical support services such as export and marketing opportunities at major international trade exhibitions, like Farnborough and Paris. It also enjoys close links with the MOD.
Our Membership Directory and Capabilities Database promote WEAF members online using detailed and structured information on competency. Our aim is to facilitate an environment where companies can improve their competitiveness and grow the industry.
To this end, WEAF runs the Aerospace and Advanced Engineering iNet, networking and training events. It also actively encourages skills development and leads key Steering Groups within the aerospace and defence industry.
