Quickstep says it has secured a new purchase order to build a further 12 flap sets plus spares for Lockheed Martin’s C-130J Hercules airlifter.
The flaps are covered by a December 2013 memorandum of agreement with Lockheed Martin to supply more than 120 carbon fibre flaps for the C-130J aircraft through until 2018. The latest flaps order is the third under the MOA, and takes to 67 the total of flap sets Bankstown Airport-based Quickstep has been contracted to deliver.
The first flaps built under the agreement were delivered in February 2014.
