LMI Aerospace Inc. signed a long-term supply agreement with Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. to design and build the tailcone section of the new Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ), which is expected to enter into service in 2014. LMI will participate in the entire product life cycle, from the joint development phase through sustaining production and beyond. This effort will entail design, analysis, certification support, tool design/fabrication, and test support, culminating in full-rate manufacturing and spares production. The program is expected to require approximately 100,000 h of engineering development and analysis before reaching recurring production. The first unit delivery of the tailcone structure is planned in the third quarter of 2011.
