L-3 MAS announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Aerolia to design, manufacture and deliver the overwing exit doors for the Bombardier Global 7000™ and Global 8000™ aircraft program.

Aerolia was selected by Bombardier to design and manufacture the central fuselage section of the new Global 7000 and Global 8000 business jets.

The doors to be produced by L-3 MAS will be delivered to Aerolia, who will then install them on the center fuselage of each aircraft. Under the contract, L-3 MAS will be responsible for the design, testing, certification and final assembly of the state-of-the-art doors, which feature a one-piece design. Detail parts will be manufactured by L-3 Crestview Aerospace in Crestview, Fla.
