Hamburg Aviation is

The aviation cluster of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region - one of the world's most important sites for the civil aviation industry.  In order to promote Hamburg as an aviation location, the local companies, universities, associations, economic authorities and other partners have joined together to form the Aviation Cluster Hamburg Aviation.

Hamburg Aviation was honored by the BMBF as a leading-edge cluster in 2008 and in 2013 received the "Gold Label of Cluster Management Excellence" from the European Cluster Excellence Initiative. In 2016, the cluster was awarded as a “Landmark of Excellence in Germany – Land of Ideas”.
Together, we pursue one goal: to develop innovative products and services as well as to open up new fields of competence in order to secure the long-term competitiveness of the third largest aviation location worldwide.
