A broad overview of the major decisions and developments affecting the German aerospace industry are presented. Production and development status of the Federal Association of Human Aerospace Industries (BDLI) are described and it is noted that the shortage of development work is growing more acute. VFW-Fokker and MBB are presently jockeying for position in anticipation of the expected merger. VFM-Fokker's reorganization efforts have managed to stave off bankruptcy, and MBB, despite considerable financial burdens, has maintained a good balance sheet. The Dornier Group on the other hand, has maintained a financially stable position primarily because of it's emphasis on diversification, specialization, and capacity restriction. The aircraft engine sector presently constitutes an integral part of German aerospace industry.
