Spirit AeroSystems and Boeing Celebrate 737 MAX 9 First Flight

April 17 2017

Spirit AeroSystems Inc. and Boeing celebrated the first flight of the 737 MAX 9 when it took to the skies from Renton Field near Boeing's 737 Final Assembly plant in Renton, Wash. Spirit AeroSystems produces the 737 MAX fuselage, pylon, thrust reverser and engine nacelle at its Wichita, Kan., facility and the wing leading edge at its Tulsa, Okla., facility.

The 737 MAX 9 further strengthens the MAX family position in the single-aisle market and enables airlines to reach farther on almost every single-aisle route they operate today. Spirit is responsible for delivering about 70 percent of the 737 structure to Boeing and has been investing in upgrades to its historic Plant 2 and its Wichita facilities. Last year, Spirit opened a new 737 thrust reverser assembly area and delivered its first 737 thrust reverser with a composite inner wall.
