Peterborough Aerospace Centre

Peterborough has taken
to the skies!

The Peterborough Aerospace Centre is designed to provide new and established aerospace businesses with services and benefits that will provide a significant competitive advantage.

With the most generous R&D tax incentives in the industrialized world, a highly educated workforce, low business costs and tax rates, Canada is the best place to do business.

Invest in Peterborough Aerospace Centre (PAC) to achieve global excellence

Current Businesses resident at the Peterborough Aerospace Centre (PAC) benefit from modern infrastructure and support services to consolidate and expand their markets.  This combined with easy access to Canadian and world aerospace markets makes it an attractive place from which to connect the aerospace market.  Part of the benefit is the close proximity to the United States, the world’s largest aerospace market and with whom Canada has a special trade / flight certification status that is the envy of the rest of the world.  This allows businesses to compete in the US market without having to deal with the challenges of being located within the United States.

The PAC has placed its focus on the MR&O, Flight Training, Manufacturing and R&D.  This can provide businesses with the necessary network  for a successful business development.   Businesses can also take advantage of a modern airport with the necessary facilities and capabilities to enhance any aerospace venture.

The Peterborough Airport has had millions of dollars of recent government investment which will continue well into the future.  With an already existing principal runway of 7,000 feet, the Peterborough Airport is now relocating and paving the crosswind runway to accommodate Seneca College’s flight training operations; one of its newest clients and the only program of its kind in Canada.

Let the  Peterborough Aerospace Centre (PAC) invest in your business, big or small.  By relocating to the PAC or by becoming a PAC corporate partners is choosing a region that is strategically located within Canada’s aerospace heartland and easily accessible by air and land from Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.

The PAC is a nexus of aerospace excellence, with a vision to grow into a world class aerospace centre of  excellence for aerospace suppliers, it is an ideal location for new and established businesses in the aerospace sector… Join the move to increased competitiveness – become part of the Peterborough Aerospace Centre experience!

Buckle your seatbelt, we’re about to take off.

Why Peterborough?

Nestled amidst some of the most scenic cottage country lakes in Ontario, an urban regional hub to a market of roughly 350 000 people, and a short 90-minute drive to the massive market of Toronto… The question should really be “Why not Peterborough?
