Featuring the leading edge of the advanced materials and manufacturing sectors, this App provides the contact details of the key players in the Welsh aerospace industry, as well as a means of carrying out useful desk research direct from your Apple iPhone, Apple iPad, Android smartphone or tablet.

As well as providing full contact details on each company, the App also provides a quick means for telephoning the contact, sending an email, browsing their website, seeing their position on an interactive map, and even plotting a route from your current UK GPS location to the company's location.
