Turkey’s leading aviation company, Turkish Aerospace signed two more contracts with the U.S.-based Spirit AeroSystems to manufacture and supply Section 48–Tail Feather for Boeing 737 MAX-8 of the aircraft maker’s single-aisle family.
The deals also cover the production of over 400 parts and sub-assembly components for Boeing platforms.
Turkish Aerospace will be responsible for all production phases while the production and delivery of Section 48 is scheduled to begin in 2023.
Sub-assemblies to be provided by Turkish Aerospace as of 2024 will be used in various platforms of Boeing, including 737, 747 and 777.
Meanwhile, previously reached agreements on the production and delivery of 2,125 aircraft parts and sub-assembly components will run through 2028.
Commenting on the new deals, the state-run aviation company's head Temel Kotil said that the company provides globally prominent manufacturers with top products while continuing to develop domestic projects for Turkey’s aviation sector.
Industrial cooperation between Turkish Aerospace and Boeing is based on a wide range of items.
Having delivered thousands of parts and sub-components so far, Turkish Aerospace is currently producing the 787 Dreamliner's elevator, cargo panel and tailplane, and 737 elevators for Boeing at its state-of-the-art facilities in the Turkish capital Ankara.
Last year, Turkish Aerospace signed an agreement with Boeing for high-quality thermoplastic composite parts in line with the Turkish company’s investment plans.
