DSA is the heart of Aero Centre Yorkshire, a 650 hectare (1,600 acre) site with over 46,000 square metres (495,000 square feet) of existing floorspace, with enough land for a further 511,000 square metres (5.5 million square feet) of commercial floor space.

The airport is also experiencing rapid growth in the cargo and logistics market, helped by its central UK location within a national logistics hot spot between the Humber ports and in the motorway network which makes it an ideal location for national and international distribution.
SCR has a young and dynamic workforce with a strong skills base in advanced manufacturing, aviation, aerospace, IT, creative and cultural industries, engineering and logistics.
