Projects across the world
AERTEC’s professionals have the opportunity of working across the world.
AERTEC is committed to the development of public and private sector companies across the world. We have already executed projects in over 40 countries in the five continents. We currently have offices in Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Colombia, Peru and the United Arab Emirates.
Our international projects cover all of AERTEC’s lines of business: aeronautical industry, systems and airports, although this last field is the one in which we have most of our projects around the world, with more than 200 airports in which we have rolled out our projects.
Master Plan for Matecaña Airport (PEI)
The project focused on updating the traffic forecasts and needs, taking into account the rapid and powerful recovery of the aeronautical market in Colombia. Our colleagues from the Airport Infrastructures area, Dion, José Carlos and Alejandro, worked on this project on-site.
Sofia International Airport (SOF)
A team of professionals from AERTEC, which included Francesc and Roger, among others, developed a safety supervision project at Bulgaria’s main airport, conducting the audits of all of its safety filters.
Industry projects for Airbus
Chester (United Kingdom)
Airbus has several facilities in the Chester area and we carry out many projects for them. We have offices there, with almost twenty professionals, led by Darren, and which focus on projects related to the aeronautical component manufacturing industry.
Projects at Sharjah Airport (SHJ)
We have several projects in progress, in collaboration with the Sharjah Airport Authority, and continue to expand our relationship with new initiatives. AERTEC works hand-in-hand with its clients as proof of its commitment, guaranteeing top quality results of all activities and an excellent performance, resulting in more and more trust in our team, which includes Víctor, Bareqa and Yousef, among others.
Decommissioning the A400M aircraft
Once an aircraft reaches the end of its useful life, all equipment is disassembled from the aircraft and inspected, classified and redistributed, so it can be used as spare parts. Sara and Amalia are responsible for these tasks, in collaboration with other teams of the Flight Test Centre, for the A400M in Bremen, a very important task aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the aeronautical industry.
Projects for the aeronautical industry
We have a growing portfolio of aeronautical industry projects in Toulouse, so we coordinate the professionals participating in different projects of several industrial areas and related to different aircraft systems from our offices in Toulouse. Mathis, Mario, Ángel, Gwénaëlle and Diego are some of our employees based in Toulouse.
Expansion project of Jorge Chávez Airport (LIM)

This project represents a vital milestone for the future of Peru’s economy and, in particular, with regards to positioning it as the airport hub of Latin America.
Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL)
AERTEC has been working for over a decade at this airport. It was responsible for drafting the new Master Plan for a 20-year period, which included the analysis of all infrastructures, short, medium and long-term traffic forecasts, as well as the definition of the different expansion scenarios. A large team of our professionals is responsible for ensuring that this project proceeds with the highest standards of quality possible.

Rebuilding of Caribbean airport
In 2021, hurricane Iota devastated this Caribbean island. A few months later, AERTEC and a local construction company were responsible for the design and rebuilding of the airfield with a large team, which included our colleague Alejandro. One of the complex issues regarding the project involved the need to prevent future similar emergencies at a place that is hard to reach and which cannot easily receive aid and resources due to the characteristics of the terrain.
MRO MRTT for the Royal Air Force
Airforce Base (Saudi Arabia)
Our Production Control team of the Getafe MRO MTT completed the 6Y maintenance cycle of the Royal Saudi Air Force’s MRTT fleet successfully. During the project, some of our employees spent two-month periods at a military base. Our colleagues Francisco Javier and Gonzalo appear in the photograph, taken at the time one of the aircraft was being delivered.
Tooling support services for C295
Members of our Tooling team of the Aerospace Industry Division, including Javier and Alberto, travelled to Airbus’s facilities in Warsaw and spent a few months there to compare the condition of the tools installed on aircraft C-295 with the specifications contained in the documents. The aim was to compare and clarify the situation and the procedures, including some upgrades to the new documents drafted.

New Aerocafé Airport
The new Coffee Airport is a very important airport infrastructure project currently being rolled out in Palestina (Colombia) to replace the current airport of La Nubia in Manizales, which remains closed most of the year due to weather problems. Some of our professionals, like José Luis, Alejandro or José Carlos, travel there on a regular basis to monitor the works.
Support for UAS programmes in Colombia
Airforce bases (Colombia)
Our colleagues from the UAS area, José María and Sergio, spent 3 weeks in Colombia to provide support to the National Ministry of Defence during the in-flight testing campaign of the ART QUIMBAYA, the first remotely piloted aircraft system. The campaign was quite a success. AERTEC has provided advice and support to Colombia’s Ministry of Defence during the design, development, manufacturing and testing process.
iTabla and industrial digitalisation processes
One of the first places in which iTabla was commissioned was at the Airbus Warsaw factory. Some of our colleagues from the Industrial Digitalisation area travelled to the factory to commission and fine tune the system and train new operators. Our colleagues from the Aerospace Industry area,Rafael, Fran, Ignacio and Enrique, provided support during the Production Planning and Control stages.
