Bombardier awards Learjet 85 contract to Comtek Advanced Structures Ltd.

Avcorp Industries is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Comtek Advanced Structures (Comtek), has been awarded a contract by Bombardier Aerospace under which Comtek will design, manufacture and support the floor panels for the Learjet 85 business jet. Comtek currently supplies the floor panels for Bombardier's Q400 turboprop and CRJ700, CRJ900 and CRJ1000 regional jets and has done so since the program's start. The Learjet 85 aircraft program contract marks a significant expansion of Comtek's relationship with Bombardier as a provider of similar design-build products for business aircraft. Under a separate agreement with Bombardier, Comtek also provided flooring spares through its global distribution network for Q-Series 100/200/300 turboprop aircraft.

"Comtek is excited to expand its long-term relationship with Bombardier as a Tier 1 design-build supplier," said Patrick Whyte, Comtek's President. "As a specialist in composite aircraft structures, we are well- positioned to grow as the use of composites in new aircraft designs continues to increase."

Launched in 2007, the Learjet 85 aircraft program fits the midsize segment of the market. It will be the first Bombardier business jet to feature a primarily composite structure.

In addition to the flooring, Comtek will also provide composite panels that are integrated into the avionics rack for the Learjet 85 aircraft.
