The structures were delivered to Boeing Philadelphia from Triumph Aerospace Structures Composites Center of Excellence in Milledgeville, Georgia, a longstanding supplier for the V-22 program.
The ramp and ramp door structures add to the existing statement of work Triumph provides for the V-22 program. The Milledgeville site also provides fuselage structures for the aircraft including the sponsons, wiper fairings and main landing gear doors.
Pete Wick, executive vice president for Triumph Aerospace Structures said:
“For more than 20 years Triumph’s Milledgeville site has provided composite structures for the V-22 program. We are pleased to expand our scope of work on this very important platform used across multiple branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.”
Triumph will deliver a total of 60 composite ramp and ramp door assemblies directly to the Boeing Philadelphia facility for integration onto the aft fuselage of the aircraft.
In addition to the V-22, Triumph’s Composite Center of Excellence in Milledgeville provides structural components for the Boeing 787, 777, 767 and 747 programs.
