The present study aims to ascertain the influence of social capital and availability of qualified labor on the competitiveness of aerospace cluster firms in Mexico. Data analysis in this study is carried out using multivariate linear regression method of ordinary least squares. The study results show that the variables, social capital and the availability of qualified labor, have a positive and statistically significant influence on the competitiveness of aerospace firms established in a cluster. The findings are relevant because there are few empirical studies determining the impact of social capital on the competitiveness of aerospace companies. The study also corroborates the impact of the availability of qualified labor on the competitiveness of the aerospace firms that are part of the clusters.
