NTMA Special Event! Tour Northrop Grumman El Segundo Manufacturing Center



In recognition of what the NTMA does in the region, Northrop Grumman has offered a special tour for our members of a world class facility. Northrop Grumman is responsible for the design and production of the aft/center fuselage section and vertical tails and integration of all associated subsystems of the F/A-18 Super Hornet, as principal subcontractor to Boeing. The Super Hornet is the U.S. Navy’s frontline carrier-based aircraft. Recently, the company celebrated two significant milestones: The deliveries of the 600th Super Hornet ship set and the 300th Hornet center barrel. The tour will include a visit to the company’s state-of-the-art F/A-18 manufacturing facility, as well as, a visit to the Integrated Composites Center, where Northrop Grumman has pioneered the use of high-strength, lightweight graphite composite materials used throughout the structure of the F/A-18.
