Taiwan?s AIDC to assist MRJ design
Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has signed a contract with the Taiwan-based Aerospace Industrial Development Corporation (AIDC) under which the latter will design and manufacture slats, flaps, belly fairings, rudders and elevators for the MRJ (Mitsubishi Regional Jet).
Commenting on the arrangement, AIDC president Shiah Yeau-Yi said, “We are honoured to be a partner on the MRJ project and to be able to participate in producing the MRJ. Producing technologically advanced materials requires working with superior business partners. As such, we are fully committed to making this into a model project that will meet the world’s demand in structural aircraft parts and do so in a timely fashion.”
“With the participation of AIDC, we have just about assembled all of our primary partners required for development and production of the MRJ,” noted Mitsubishi Aircraft president Nobuo Toda.
