The Queensland Government is committed to supporting the state's rapidly developing and innovative aerospace industry. The Queensland Aerospace 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan, part of the Advance Queensland initiative, is the Queensland Government’s plan to capitalise on the opportunities available to Queensland aerospace businesses. It will accelerate the pace of growth in both the civilian and defence aerospace sectors, and help them to create the high paid, sustainable jobs of the future. Queensland is well-known as an aviation hub of the Asia-Pacific region, attracting a number of global leaders in the civil and defence aviation area. Queensland's existing strength in this complementary industry sector gives the state a distinct advantage for further development in the aerospace field.
