Tour of Avcorp Composite Fabrication

Tour of Avcorp Composite Fabrication

LA Chapter meeting on January 31

Weight is everything when it comes to heavier-than-air machines, and designers have striven continuously to improve lift to weight ratios since man first took to the air. Composite materials have played a major part in weight reduction and will pave the way to the future of flight in flying machines yet to be designed.

Join us on Wednesday, January 31, 7:30am – 9:00am PDT, for a tour of Avcorp Composite Fabrication (ACF) to see a view of modern composites methods applied to both commercial and military aircraft. The degree of automation and the scale of the operation will surprise most visitors.

ACF provides structural composite components for the Boeing 787 (The Dreamliner), the Joint Strike Fighter (F-35 Lightening), the Atlas V rocket, the Trident Strategic Missile program and many others.

Tickets are limited to 20 people on a first-come first-served basis.

You must be a U.S. citizen or active green card holder to gain entry to the site (proof of a legal right to work in the U.S.).

The meeting is free for A&D Forum members and $40 for non-members ($30 Early Bird until January 24). For more information and to register to attend the meeting go to http://adflajan18.eventbrite.com.
