Metro Aerospace is a Catalyze Dallas affiliate that specializes in advanced manufacturing processes, delivering certified next generation aerospace components. The company holds the exclusive global rights to design and supply Microvanes TM, an additively manufactured drag-reduction technology developed and patented by Lockheed Martin to enhance performance and reduce fuel for both military and commercial operators.

Microvanes were offered for sale by Metro within two months of Catalyze spinning out the technology, and in just under two years, Metro grew into an AS-9100D certified business, now supplying a variety of military and FAA approved commercial Microvanes to clients across four continents.

Leveraging our network of contract manufacturers, we tap into the absolute best in aerospace manufacturing to ensure conformity to exact design specifications and rigorous quality standards. We also have unmatched expertise in achieving rapid FAA certification for after-market aerospace components.
