Engaged: American Utilicraft Corporation And Metalcraft Technologies

Companies Planning To Build FF-1080 Prototype Aircraft

Metalcraft Technologies, Inc. (MTI) and American Utilicraft Corporation have entered into formal discussions with the idea of signing a contract for the manufacture of the fuselage for the FF-1080 flight test and production aircraft.

The companies expect to finalize their negotiations and enter into a definitive agreement to begin construction of the center fuselage section for the Pre-Production Prototype FF-1080 aircraft within the next 30 days.

For the flight test aircraft, MTI proposes to:

  • Manufacture all the details for the fuselage.
  • Design and manufacture all required assembly jigs and fixtures.
  • Assemble the forward and aft sections of the fuselage (including horizontal and vertical stabilizers) at their facility in Cedar City (UH).
  • Provide technical assistance and supervision for the assembly of the center section of the fuselage at the American Utilicraft facility in Lawrenceville (GA), on Gwinnett County Airport (LZU).

American Utilicraft intends to conduct final assembly of the prototype aircraft at its planned (to be constructed) 80,000 sq. ft Final Assembly Facility in New Mexico.

It is American Utilicraft management's opinion that MTI is particularly well suited to undertake this type of activity for the Company because of MTI's long-term experience in the aerospace subassembly manufacturing business, and particularly their "hands on" involvement in the production of detail parts and major structural assemblies for Sino Swearingen, Eclipse, and Safire flight test articles.
