2006 Annual Report
Since our founders, the Wright brothers and Glenn Curtiss, pioneered the early days of aviation, we have fostered an innovative spirit for advanced technology in commercial aerospace.
Every day, in every part of the world, thousands of commercial airliners take off and land safely with the help of our highly engineered products. We provide the high-performance actuation systems that operate the aircraft flight control surfaces and allow an aircraft to take off and land at lower speeds, increasing passenger safety and reducing runway lengths. Our sensors and data recording technologies ensure critical monitoring of flight operations and communicate vital data on conditions within and surrounding the aircraft. With advanced metal treatment services like shot peening, we form the complex aerodynamic shapes of the wing skins on all Airbus commercial aircraft and improve the fatigue life of structural, turbine engine and landing gear components.
