Bombardier Aerospace Builds All-Composite Manufacturing Validation Unit

Bombardier Aerospace has announced it has reached another significant Learjet 85 aircraft program milestone, having successfully built the first all-composite manufacturing validation unit (MVU) for the aircraft's pressure fuselage section.

This unit will be used to validate the design concepts, manufacturing processes and quality as the program advances towards the beginning of production, scheduled for later this year.

"This is another crucial step towards the start of production of the first Learjet 85 aircraft," said Ralph Acs, Vice President, Learjet 85, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Our next step will be to apply what we learn from this first manufacturing validation unit to the second unit, in order to confirm our technology readiness."

Spoof Sites

Spoof sites copy the appearance of popular Web sites in order to steal an individual's personal information. Once they receive this information it may be used to commit identity theft or other crimes. Fraudsters are becoming smarter in their process of building a spoof site, so it is important to pay close attention.

Spoof sites can vary greatly. They can appear as a "third party payment protection" company, freight Carrier Company that promises free delivery, or an Auto Trader Warehouse. These are all fraudulent!
