Owing to the extremely high development costs and the limited national markets, new aircraft programmes in Europe today are now only executed in multinational cooperation. Usually, a work-sharing scheme is devised corresponding to the financial participation of the individual partners, with the result that design and production of the aircraft are spread over several countries. This is accentuated by subcontracting components to the industry of customer countries (offset transactions).
