Cobham’s values of Trust, Talent and Technology have driven it from its launch in 1934 by Sir Alan Cobham, an aviation innovator, to becoming a global leader in state-of-the-art aerospace and defence systems.
Sir Alan worked tirelessly to make flying popular. His personal dream was that ‘one day there would be a landing ground in every major town’. More than 80 years later, with airports commonplace, that pioneering spirit thrives. Cobham has more than 12,000 dedicated professionals across five continents, producing world leading products and solutions.
Cobham has a long track record of raising successive generations of innovators, pioneers and entrepreneurs, like Sir Alan, to be proud of. But more than ever, in a world of accelerating change and global competition, it is the talent it attracts and encourages now that will underwrite its future.
