Turkish Aerospace (TUSAŞ) continues to make deliveries to Spirit, one of the leading companies in the global aviation industry. TUSAŞ first started to deliver the detail parts in 2012 and then the first finished product in 2014 for the Airbus A220 Fixed Trailing Edge, for a total of 200 aircraft so far. TUSAŞ aims to deliver a total of 1770 aircraft sets within the scope of the project.
As part of the "Fixed Trailing Edge", which is referred to as the part to which the moving parts (Spoiler, Aileron etc.) and the landing gear are attached, there are 2 inner and 2 outer spars, one on each wing, in a set for one aircraft. In this framework, while continuing the production at full steam, TUSAŞ completed the delivery of the sets for a total of 200 aircraft. TUSAŞ, which was deemed worthy of many awards in the production of air structures, which it carries out as a "sole source" for several leading aviation companies, especially Airbus and Boeing, continues its production activities based on quality and error-free manufacturing processes.
TUSAŞ President and CEO Temel KOTİL said, “We have achieved another milestone in our deliveries we have realized to Spirit, one of the catalyst brands of the global aircraft structural part industry. We are very excited to deliver the 200th of the critical parts we manufacture for Airbus A220 aircraft. Our strategic cooperation with Spirit goes back many years. I congratulate all my colleagues who have contributed both at Spirit and TUSAŞ, and hope our strategic cooperation will continue fruitfully.”
