V System Composites has been awarded a contract from The Boeing Company to produce composite wind tunnel blades for the Boeing Transonic Wind Tunnel in Seattle, USA.

The blades are used in a 24ft. diametre fan in the wind tunnel facility, part of the Aero/Noise/Propulsion Laboratory, and performs an essential developmental role for all new aircraft programs within The Boeing Company.

VSC’s contract is for an initial delivery of 72 blades, with an option for an additional 72 blades.
