Boeing To Supply Trailing Edge Flaps For US Navy’s F/A-18 Aircraft
F/A-18 Super Hornet

Boeing has won $43 million contract to supply 48 Trailing Edge flaps for US Navy’s F/A-18 fighter aircraft, the US Department of Defense said in a statement Monday.

A Trailing Edge is the rear edge of an aircraft’s wing flap where the airflow separated by the Leading Edge, which is a part of the wing that first contacts the air, rejoins. The trailing edge is the location for essential control surfaces.

Work is expected to be completed in June 2021.
