  • NBAA: Wichita remains core as Spirit AeroSystems plots new strategy

    News | 08 Oct 2013 14:00 | Stephen Trimble

    Wichita has been home to Spirit AeroSystems since 1927, two years before Lloyd Stearman’s biplane factory became part of Boeing. Over those 85 years, the facility has grown into one of the largest production complexes in the aerospace industry, measuring about 3.22km (2.00 miles) wide and 1.60km long over 243 hectares (600 acres) of southwest Wichita. It is here that Spirit AeroSystems transforms raw sheet metal and – increasingly, these days – graphite-epoxy resin into full-scale assemblies that are shipped by train or by 747 DreamLifter to Boeing’s final assembly centres in the Seattle suburbs of Renton and Everett.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/NBAA-Wichita-remains-core-as-Spirit-AeroSystems-plots-new-strategy-391474/
