PCX Aerostructures celebrates manufacturing milestone with Boeing CH-47F helicopter landing at Connecticut HQ

In recognition of 40 years of manufacturing excellence in building and delivering complex Flight Critical assemblies for the Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter, PCX Aerostructures, LLC is being honored by the Army with the landing of the rotorcraft at the company's Connecticut headquarters on October 26, 2016.

PCX executives and employees will be joined by local and state leadership to highlight the company's longstanding partnership with Boeing, maker of the advanced multi-mission aircraft, and the U.S. Army. As a long term supplier of many dynamic assemblies installed on the CH-47, the company headquarters will serve as a commemorative backdrop for the fly-in, which will occur between 9:00-10:00 AM. The heavy-lift cargo helicopter will remain on static display at the Newington facility until early afternoon, allowing the PCX workforce to celebrate their combined success in supporting the program over the decades. Developed in the late 1950s, the Chinook is the longest running continual production program in The Boeing Company, meeting tactical and combat support mission requirements for military forces around the world.

"We are humbled that the Army is honoring the many years of dedicated hard work our employees have devoted to the success of the CH-47 program by landing this helicopter at our headquarters. In addition to our current staff performing outstanding work on this platform, in many cases their fathers and mothers also worked on this helicopter in the early years of its production," said Alan L. Haase, President & CEO of PCX Aerostructures.
