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.

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.
