PPG Industries’ Aerospace Transparencies group was recently recognized by Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. for exemplary performance in meeting the schedule to develop windshields and side flight-deck windows for the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ). Brent Wright, PPG Aerospace global platform director for transparencies, accepted a plaque from Mitsubishi Aircraft executive vice president Norio Aoki during a conference in Nagoya for key program suppliers. PPG was one of three supply partners honored.

“We are honored to be recognized by Mitsubishi Aircraft with the Cooperative Partner Award for working hard to meet the development schedule,” Wright said. “This is especially meaningful because we are developing lightweight flight-deck transparencies that will be among the largest in commercial aviation while helping Mitsubishi Aircraft break new ground in aviation.”

Wright said PPG has completed design of the windshields and side flight-deck windows and development is under way. The heated glass windshields and windows will be produced at PPG’s Huntsville, Ala., facility.

The MRJ is a family of 70- to 90-seat next-generation regional jets under development by Mitsubishi Aircraft.
