Dassault Aviation has selected NORDAM as a supplier for its Falcon 900 and Falcon 2000 aircraft cabin window assemblies.
Following a year-long certification process with the French business and corporate jet manufacturer, NORDAM has contracted to deliver the passenger cabin windows for each of the two aircraft types through 2012.
“For three decades, we’ve been a Dassault supplier across several of our businesses,” NORDAM’s Vice Chairman and Transparency Group Chief Operating Officer T. Hastings Siegfried says.
“Having proven our capabilities on the Falcon 900 and 2000, we’re confident new opportunities will arise to provide aerospace transparencies for future Dassault programs, as well.”
Production and supply of the cabin window assemblies currently is underway at NORDAM’s transparency manufacturing plant in Tulsa.
Other components NORDAM supplies to Dassault include contoured interior liners for the Falcon 7X, Falcon 900 and Falcon 2000 aircraft; and thrust reversers for the Falcon 2000.
A major supplier of transparency products for the commercial, business, military and rotor-wing aircraft markets, NORDAM casts its own acrylic and produces NORDEX 188 stretched acrylic for use in passenger cabin windows, glazings and flight deck products.
Product lines manufactured include windshields, cabin windows, wing-tip and landing-light lens assemblies, stretched acrylic and simulator back projection screens. The company’s proprietary cast and stretched acrylics support multiple and aftermarket programs and also are sold as raw materials.
Operational upgrades have been made at its acrylic casting facility.
Headquartered in Tulsa NORDAM employs more than 2,000 people across nine facilities on three continents. NORDAM is one of the world’s largest independently-owned aerospace companies.
In addition to manufacturing aircraft transparencies, the firm designs, certifies and manufactures integrated propulsion systems and nacelles and thrust reversers for business jets. The company also builds composite aircraft structures, interior shells, custom cabinetry and radomes.
NORDAM also is a major third-party provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services to the military, commercial airline and air freight markets.
