employs 130 team members at its Paint and Finish Facility. With this

Aircraft. " These investments allow us to both meet the increasing
demand for our leading-edge aircraft and create additional jobs in
our local communities. "
Delta Air Lines To Modernize Single-Aisle
Fleet with Up to 130 Boeing 737 MAX Jets
Boeing and Delta Air Lines announced the U.S. carrier will modernize
its single-aisle fleet with the highly efficient 737 MAX to meet demand
as well as its long-term sustainability goals. In a signing ceremony at
the Farnborough International Airshow, the companies said Delta
is ordering 100 737-10 jets - selecting the largest member of the 737
MAX family - with options for an additional 30 airplanes. The 73710
will provide Delta Air Lines with the best per-seat economics of
any single-aisle Boeing model, reducing fuel use and emissions by
20-30 percent compared to the airplanes it replaces. The jet can
cover 99 percent of single-aisle routes around the world, seating up
to 230 passengers with a maximum range of 3,300 nautical miles.
" We are proud that Delta Air Lines, is renewing its single-aisle fleet
with the 737 MAX, the industry's most fuel-efficient family of airplanes, "
said Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial
Airplanes. " Built in our factory in Washington state with support
from key suppliers across the U.S., the 737-10 will provide Delta Air
Lines with the best economics to carry more passengers across its
short and medium-haul routes. " Delta Air Lines has also contracted
with Boeing Global Services for a full interior reconfiguration of 29
Next Generation 737-900ERs in its fleet.

with Carbon Fiber Inner Barrel
Quiet Technology Aerospace (QTA) delivered its 300th Carbon
Graphite Engine Inlet Cowl featuring QTA's carbon fiber inner barrel
to Jet Edge International, a Bombardier Challenger 300 operator

engineering and manufacturing program.

barrel terminates the expensive and time-consuming OEM problem
of aluminum engine inlet cowl inner barrel corrosion and acoustic
screen degradation.
