Aotearoa New Zealand Aerospace Strategy

Days left

Submissions due: 12 October 2022, 5pm

We want your input to develop the content of the Aotearoa New Zealand Aerospace Strategy (the Aerospace Strategy).

Your views will inform the final Aerospace Strategy, which aims to support the further growth of an internationally competitive Aotearoa New Zealand aerospace sector that is thriving, innovative and safe. 

Aerospace is a dynamic sector that combines space and advanced aviation activities. The Aerospace Strategy will focus on innovation and economic development drivers and set the overall broad direction for the sector, align activities across the government and the sector, and inform policy and regulatory development.

The ‘Developing the Aotearoa New Zealand Aerospace Strategy’ Consultation Document gives an overview of the areas that will make up the Aerospace Strategy. Alongside this, key questions are asked.

We want to hear your views on developing the content for the following areas of the Aerospace Strategy:

  • Overview of the Aerospace Strategy
  • A strategy for building our aerospace sector
  • Building strong foundations (Three Pillars)
  • Goals for the 2030 Future State
  • Pathway to the 2030 Future State.

We encourage anyone with an interest in the New Zealand aerospace sector to make a submission.

Consultation is also currently open on the Space Policy Review.
