Since 1927 our mission is the success of your mission

Founded in Milan in 1927, AEREA is a privately owned company devoted to store carriage and release systems, role equipment, structural components, and ground support equipment for fixed and rotary wing military aircraft.

Our design ability, gained over years of experience, along with the high quality of our production departments and state-of-the-art facility are at the base of AEREA’s outstanding ability to provide solutions optimizing the requirements of the aircraft platform. That includes the needs of airborne stores, and end users’ expectations for the most complex defense aeronautics programs, from development to post-production support.

Our products are integrated on prominent national and international NATO platforms including EF2000 Typhoon, F-35 Lightning II, M346, NH90, and AW/T129.
Since 2014, we operate from a modern facility in Turate (Como), purposely designed to meet the highest quality standards of today’s as well as future markets.

Since 1980, AEREA has been a member of CIRA, the Italian Center for Aerospace Research. AEREA’s commercial liaison office in the United States is active in Washington D.C. (Crystal City) since the 1990s to support business development and government relations.

Established in 1988, ACMA GmbH is today an AEREA Airbus joint venture based in Munich supporting various Eurofighter contracts.

In 2018, AEREA acquired 100% control of Galvair, a separate firm located in Barberino del Mugello (Florence), specializing in unique processes and NDIs for metal parts, supporting customers in aerospace, space, and automotive sectors.
