Orlando Spring Contributes to the Unprecedented Success of F-35C’s Test Launch

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Los Alamitos, CA (February 24, 2015) – Orlando Spring Corporation, a trusted name in precision spring and wire form manufacturing, was part of the F-35C Lightning’s record-setting night op test aboard the USS Nimitz on Nov. 14, 2014.

The aircraft successfully completed its night launch and landing test three days ahead of schedule as a result of its exceptional performance on the initial sea trials, thereby speeding through the first developmental test. The F-35C was able to outperform the F/A-18 Hornet and F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet, which typically carry out night ops at the second developmental trial phase.

“Orlando Spring is extremely proud to be a part of the evolution of the F-35 program to better support our troops around the world.  We are in this for the long haul and will continue to support new military programs for all branches of the government by working directly with OEM’s as well as Tier 1 and Tier 2 partners,” said Frank Mauro, President of Orlando Spring. “The F-35 fighter is the most technically advanced military aircraft in the world, so each component that is fitted to this platform requires precision made parts that are built to the highest standards. Orlando Spring produces parts for this platform that require extremely tight squareness requirements in both the loaded and free states. This is one of the many requirements that separate Orlando Spring from all other spring companies,” said Bob Dominguez, Engineering Manager at Orlando Spring.

The F-35C, made with Orlando Spring’s precision components, reported a total of 33 flights conducted during the first developmental test. The test featured 124 catapults, 222 touch-and-go landings, and 124 arrestments. During these 39.2 flight hours, the F-35C did not miss any unintentional hook-down bolters, and was able to catch an arresting wire at every single attempt.

Orlando Spring maintains numerous certifications and registrations, including: ISO 9001:2008, EN/JISQ AS 9100:2004, Nadcap process, DDTC for ITAR, Boeing-AQMS, and D6-82479. This historic success highlights the continued excellence found in Orlando Spring’s products and services, and bolsters the company’s reputation in the precision manufacturing field.
