Abstract

This paper analyses the technology development and technology transfer strategies in the aircraft manufacturing industry for four industrially developing countries. It is concluded from four case studies that technology catch-up is extremely difficult due to aircraft technology characteristics. Based on this, several propositions are developed concerning technology transfer, catch-up and several aspects of learning.
