Fokker Wins Additional A350 Contract

Fokker Aerostructures has won a contract with Airbus for the development and manufacturing of the outboard flap for the A350-1000, the largest variant of the A350 XWB family. Outboard flaps increase the surface area as well as the camber of the wing during take-off and landing. Fokker has already begun development activities in collaboration with the aircraft OEM in Bremen with the first hardware set for delivery in 2015. The outboard flap for the A350-800 and A350-900 variants has also been designed by Fokker and is currently in production in Papendrecht.
