NOVAE Aerospace Solutions’

core focus is the manufacture and repair of complex aerostructures as well as the provision of innovative manufacturing and maintenance engineering services, global equipment support packages, manufacturing at customer sites, industrial transfers and technical training intended for our main customers.

We have transitioned from manufacturing aircraft to collectively making them fly

Our industrial DNA

NOVAE capitalizes on an industrial heritage spanning more than 80 years in the design and manufacture of complete aircraft.
The Group is continuing to invest and establish strategic partnerships in order to provide customers with excellent operational services and tailored solutions.
NOVAE relies on its international sites (Romania – Morocco – United Arab Emirates) and sites currently being established in Asia, to meet the needs of its customers: cost, proximity and quality of service.
