The aim of this paper is to describe the structure and the main competitive dynamics of the Aerospace productive system in Campania. After a preliminarily on-desk analysis, on-deep interviews were held with qualified regional stakeholders in order to analyze relations among enterprises and their main export markets. Great attention is given to their connection with local research centres, including the training of specialized human capital. Description of the public policies in support of the industry is followed by some brief observations on the productive system’s development prospects. EconLit Classification: M20, R500, L520, L600
