Spirit AeroSystems will attend the Air Force Association's (AFA) Air, Space & Cyber Conference next week in National Harbor, Md. The conference is the nation's premier event for defense and aerospace professionals around the world.

"This is an opportunity for Spirit to highlight the strong value proposition we bring to military customers, such as affordable cost manufacturing, commercial best practices, composite material expertise and design-build capabilities," said Spirit AeroSystems Senior Vice President and President, Defense and Fabrication Duane Hawkins. "We look forward to leveraging our commercial expertise to serve our military customers."

With a legacy of defense work stretching back to the B-29, Spirit currently designs, engineers and manufactures structural components for military programs such as the P-8, C-40 and KC-46, all of which are commercial aircraft modified for military use. Spirit is also involved in the development of the Sikorsky CH-53K, Bell V-280 Valor tiltrotor and the Northrop Grumman B-21.

Spirit's booth at AFA will showcase the company's expertise in advanced composites manufacturing, including samples of various aerostructure parts. Visitors may participate in an interactive virtual tour of Spirit’s new advanced manufacturing facility using augmented reality.
