BAE Systems has signed a new multi-year agreement with Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation (MJET) to provide engineering development and integration services related to flight test equipment and systems for the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ).
“This deal extends our work with MJET by capturing one of the second wave of contracts,” explained Stewart Cordner, VP business development, BAE Systems Asset Management. “Already we have 20-30 engineers dedicated to the programme, based in Japan, providing engineering expertise on a number of work packages for the aircraft which include powerplant, pylon, nacelle, auxiliary power units and fuel systems. And this new package could grow into something even more substantial.”
BAE Systems also has liaison support personnel on the programme in the USA at Pratt and Whitney’s facility in Hartford, CT, and at LMI Aerospace’s facility in San Diego, CA.
