Reaching for the pylon

  • 18-Nov-2008 03:59 EST
Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. selected Spirit AeroSystems Inc. to design and build the pylon for its Mitsubishi Regional Jet. Pylon work will be done at Spirit’s facility in Wichita, KS. Pylons hold an aircraft’s engine and its casing to the wing. Spirit’s Wichita location currently builds pylons for every Boeing commercial airplane in production. Spirit was also recently selected to design and build the wing for the Gulfstream G250 super midsize business jet at its Tulsa, OK, facility and ship it to Israel Aerospace Industries for incorporation with the rest of the airframe. Earlier this year, Spirit was awarded the design and manufacture of the wing for the Gulfstream G650.
