: 23 February, 2008  (Company News)
Spirit AeroSystems has announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide overhaul, repair, and modification services for Cathay Pacific Airways' fleet of 777 Trent 800 thrust reversers.
Spirit, the Trent 800 nacelle and thrust reverser original production manufacturer, will oversee the administration, supply the rotable assets, and team with Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (HAECO) to perform the actual service work. Repairs and overhauls for this Cathay Pacific program will be supported from both Spirit's Wichita repair station and HAECO's component workshop in Tseung Kwan O (TKO).

'Spirit AeroSystems is pleased to contract with Cathay Pacific to overhaul their entire fleet of Trent 800 thrust reversers. This relationship with HAECO will enable us to reduce logistics and transportation for this program while providing optimal support to our customer,' explains Carolyn Harms, Vice President -- General Manager of Spirit's Aftermarket Customer Support business unit. For Spirit, the program is the latest example of its growing maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) presence to complement its established original production manufacturer position.
