Pilot-Aircraft Controls to be designed and manufactured at CEF Industries Addison Facility
Addison, Il. . Diversified Aerospace designer and manufacturer CEF Industries LLC, has been selected by Pilatus Aircraft to design, develop, test and supply the Flap Control Handles and the Speed Brake Control Handles for the PC-24 Twin Engine Business Jet.
“CEF’s selection by Pilatus underscores the importance of our new relationship with Pilatus,” said Jason Marlin, Director of Sales & Marketing at CEF Industries. “We believe the PC-24 program represents an outstanding market opportunity and fulfills a niche that is underserved by the currently available business jet aircraft. Our selection confirms our position as the preeminent supplier for these types of pilot/aircraft interface applications. We are proud to add this aircraft to our growing list of airframes supplied.”
Under the contract CEF will provide all production and spare units and also provide aftermarket support for the fleet. These Pilot-Aircraft control devices will be the first of their kind to be installed in a Pilatus Jet Aircraft.
