Ryan Aerospace last week took out the coveted Queensland Premier’s Export Award in the Small Business Category.
Managing Director of Ryan Aerospace, Chris Ryan said he was delighted to take out this prestigious award, giving credit to his small but growing team.
“It’s recognition of many years of hard work, persistence and a yearning desire to continue innovating,” Ryan said.
Ryan Aerospace has had recent success with the US military, but markets have also increased in Europe and Asia as new products leverage the power of virtual reality technologies.
“The face of simulation and training is changing dramatically and our products are part of a disruptive move to train helicopter pilots more safely and at a much lower cost,” Ryan said.
This win makes Ryan Aerospace an automatic finalist in the National Awards with winners announced at a Gala event in Canberra in December. Ryan will be undertaking business travel to the US at that time, where the company is looking to secure commercial deals.
Ryan Aerospace was also a finalist in the Richard Joel Defence category, which was won by Brisbane-based partners and colleagues, Immersaview.
