GE awarded A350XWB Wing Trailing Edge package

GE Aviation today announced a contract award with Airbus for the design and manufacture of composite and metallic sub assemblies and components for the A350XWB wing trailing edge. GE's facility in Hamble will provide the design and development, and the manufacturing will be carried out with GE in Hamble and Suzhou China.

"With this award for the A350XWB, GE builds on its solid reputation as a supplier to Airbus for trailing edge sub assemblies and components for A340, A380 and A400M. We are providing an all-around solution to Airbus for major structural components," said Lorraine Bolsinger, president and CEO for GE Aviation Systems. "This program takes advantage of GE's global infrastructure in support of Airbus' already successful A350XWB."

The A350XWB package consists of the trailing edge details & the trailing edge secondary structures. These components and sub assemblies interface with the rear spar, wing skins and the movable portion of the wing to form a major part of the wing.

All components are designed using the latest computer technology and manufacturing techniques, and utilize GE's investment in extended facilities including thin wall high speed machining, advanced composites and determinate assembly methods, to achieve the best possible optimization.
