    Outsourcing flight controls

    Seattle Times has an article where Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO was interviewed -- Albaugh said in the interview that some things never should be outsourced and referred to flight controls.

    What does this imply for MOOG -- I thought some (if not a lot) of the B787 flight controls were outsourced to MOOG -- is Boeing not happy with this relationhip and if that is the case how will that impact MOOGs future business with Boeing

    • Boeing enlisted 787 suppliers to do more of the engineering design than traditionally done. The comment you refer to relates more to a desire by Boeing to better control the design and integration of the airplane systems and structures. Boeing would still procure flight controls equipment from suppliers such as Moog. There's no negative impact that I foresee.
