When I joined Alcoa after leaving Airbus and had a need for known experts in Aerospace program management, manufacturing technologies and operations, I called Hawksland immediately. Once again they did not disappoint.

Jens Hinrichsen - Director of Advanced Materials Technology Group - Alcoa

Hawksland Associates are proven experts in aerospace and defence. They deliver excellent results at great value.

Dr Jens Franzeck - Vice President A400M - Airbus Group

“Hawksland Associates have worked with us on a variety of assignments over the last 15 years. Whether we need to improve performance, reduce costs, have a complex programme to manage or resolve a difficult situation, they always deliver.”

Hans Buethker - President - Fokker Technologies

I worked with Gary Windas – Hawksland’s MD in the early stages of his career. It was clear even then that he was a highly motivated, enthusiastic individual with a real thirst for knowledge in the industry. Highly recommended.

Ian Etherington - Project Director at BAE Systems Military Air and Information - BAE Systems

Hawksland’s network in the aerospace industry is second to none. Give them an issue and they will know the right person to work it through and advise.

Dr David Wood - Engineering Director - Messier-Dowty - SAFRAN

Hawksland Associates are extremely good in setting up the right organisation to run very complex projects. They can perform very detailed and in-depth studies and analysis arriving at very worthwhile recommendations.

Jan-Willem Gunnink - President - GTM Advanced Structures

We engaged Hawksland because they convinced us they could manage a complex weight reduction, integration and certification program. I am pleased to recommend and thank them for their dedication in completing their assignment within a very tight timescale.

Jens Hinrichsen - A380 VTP Program Director - Airbus Group

Hawksland Associates management skill and expertise was highly appreciated during several attachments. I can recommend their work and in particular their Managing Director – Gary Windas as a person with vast sector knowledge, high integrity and spirit.

Thomas Maiss - Director of Procurement - Rolls-Royce Deutschland

Excellent Senior Executives and Managers of the highest standards! They work to tight deadlines and always deliver excellent results.

Nigel Garner - Managing Director - GCT

If you need help in aerospace supply chains, ask Hawksland Associates. They know how to deliver results and can readily mobilise many high quality associates from their global network.
