The high-tech expertise of aerospace specialist FACC in the field of lightweight construction, as well as its many years of experience in the production of high-quality aerostructures were decisive factors in Archer choosing to work with FACC and will help ensure that Archer’s production aircraft can achieve its target range and payload capabilities.
