Spirit AeroSystems, a company which designs and builds aerostructures for both commercial and defence customers, is attending the Air Force Association’s (AFA) Air, Space, & Cyber conference, which is being held from September 16-18, 2019, at National Harbor. The conference is a premier event for defence and aerospace professionals around the world.

Spirit’s booth at AFA will showcase the company’s expertise in advanced composites manufacturing, including samples of various aerostructure parts. Visitors may participate in an interactive virtual tour of our new advanced manufacturing facility using augmented reality. This experience demonstrates the company’s advanced manufacturing strategy and the future state of manufacturing, according to a media statement by the company.

“This is an opportunity for Spirit to highlight the strong value proposition we bring to military customers, such as affordable cost manufacturing, commercial best practices, composite material expertise and design-build capabilities. We look forward to leveraging our commercial expertise to serve our military customers,” Spirit AeroSystems senior vice president and president, defence, and fabrication, Duane Hawkins said.

With a legacy of defence work stretching back to the B-29, Spirit currently designs, engineers and manufactures structural components for military programmes such as the P-8, C-40, and KC-46, all of which are commercial aircraft modified for military use. Spirit is also involved in the development of the Sikorsky CH-53K, Bell V-280 Valor tiltrotor, and the Northrop Grumman B-21. (GK)
