It takes agility to fly high

The aerospace and defense industry is facing a future of mixed opportunity. Overall global defense spending is down, and today’s spending is concentrated in new regions of the globe. Meanwhile, revenues in the commercial aerospace sector are surging, fueled by growing passenger travel demand and the replacement of aging fleets. Companies in this space must be agile to weather the shifting market headwinds successfully. Deloitte’s Aerospace & Defense team delivers the strategic, financial, operational, human capital, and IT services our clients need to reach industry heights.
