Spirit's space

Spirit AeroSystems has selected its Wichita, KS, facility as the site for design and manufacture of the fuselage for the new Cessna Citation Columbus, for which the supplier will build a new 375,000-ft² factory. The facility will also provide additional capacity for existing products and other new programs. Over the next five years, Spirit expects to invest approximately $260 million and create an estimated 700 jobs with a projected annual payroll of more than $42 million in the state of Kansas, as the company executes its business plan for multiple new programs. Work will begin immediately on the new facility.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
