Local Area Stakeholders tour Stavatti-Niagara Aircraft Manufacturing Hangar

Stavatti Aerospace

December 16, 2020

John R. Simon, President & CEO of Stavatti Niagara Ltd., conducted a tour through the company’s newly-acquired, huge 47,000 sq ft aircraft hangar where the company will be bringing aircraft manufacturing back to the Empire State of New York. On tour was Town of Niagara Supervisor Lee Wallace, New York State Assemblyman Angelo Morinello, and Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino.

Wallace had previously stated that the former U.S. Army Reserve Center had largely been underutilized for many years. After the tour, he said, “It’s a very exciting project. The Town of Niagara, when we first entered into the agreement with the Department of Defense to purchase this facility, back in 2005, we envisioned something of great need and great fortune to the town, and to the county. But never dreamed that it would be something like this. It will change the face of, not only the Town of Niagara, but of Niagara County and will create thousands of jobs. Just a win-win for everyone.”

Those “thousands of jobs” of which Wallace spoke includes not only Stavatti jobs, but also the spin-off jobs that such projects always create. Stavatti’s 19.8-acre site will serve as its prototype development, production and aircraft Low Rate Initial Production center [rate, as in volume].

Stavatti anticipates the employment of nearly 600 aerospace engineering, development and manufacturing professionals at the site within the next 5 years. Anticipated key programs are next-generation Stavatti military, commercial, and general aviation aircraft that include the SM-27 Machete (turboprop), SM-28 Machete (turbofan), SM-31 Stiletto, SM-100 twin engine intermodal transport and SM-150 personal air vehicle.

After the tour, Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino said, “It’s an incredible and impressive building.” He went on to say that he was impressed with the level of detail that was shared with him during the tour; and closed out by saying, “I’m excited about the project.”

It was obviously a feather in the hat of 145th NYSA District Assemblyman Morinello that the project came to his district after an extensive 15-month review of responses from over 30 US States and 3 Canadian Provinces, Stavatti down-selected the former USARC facility in June 2020 and started acquisition.

“It is extremely exciting that Stavatti has chosen the former Army Reserve Center … for their headquarters and manufacturing facilities,” Morinello said. “Our area is famous for airplane development and building, and Stavatti will carry on that proud tradition our area is known for. This project will benefit all of western NY.”

Simon says that he welcomes opportunities to give other such tours to its stakeholder representatives.

Stavatti Responds to Egyptian MOD RFQ

Stavatti Aerospace

October 15, 2020

On 15 October 2020 Stavatti submitted a response to the Egyptian Ministry of Defense (MOD) Request For Quotation (RFQ) for 36 Advanced Jet Trainers for All Weather Conditions for the Egyptian Air Force (EAF). The Stavatti submission consisted of Technical and Financial proposals for two potential solutions including a non-development solution as well as a new design developmental aircraft.

The Stavatti non-developmental solution consists of a single engine, two seat tandem Advanced All Weather Jet Trainer and Ground Attack Aircraft. The aircraft will feature Martin Baker MK18 or ACES 5 zero-zero ejection seats, a JPATS Category 1-8 compliant cockpit and a single Honeywell F124 turbofan powerplant. The non-developmental aircraft will feature advanced aluminum lithium and scandium aluminum alloys throughout, benefit from Friction Stir Welding (FSW) and had a proposed unit flyaway cost in the $15 Million class. Benefiting from advanced production techniques, enhanced reliability systems, systemic Built-In-Test (BIT) and an Open Avionics Architecture (OAA), the aircraft had a projected Cost Per Flight Hour (CPFH) of $4,052 with 2.95 MMH/FH.

In addition to the non-developmental Stavatti solution, Stavatti also offered the SM-31T Stiletto as potential solutions to the Egyptian MOD requirement. The SM-31T is an advanced single engine, two seat tandem Supersonic Trainer and Light Weight Fighter aircraft. Powered by a single Honeywell F125X afterburning turbofan and featuring Power-By-Wire (PBW) flight controls, tandem MK18 ejection seats and aluminum lithium honeycomb sandwich construction, the SM-31T will feature an all-glass touch screen cockpit and will meet JPATS cases 1-8. A low observable stealth aircraft, the SM-31T features an internal weapons bay and 2D thrust vectoring. The SM-31T as proposed was offered at a flyaway cost in the $17 Million class with an estimated CPFH of $3,204 and 3.46 MMH/FH. The SM-31T is anticipated to be available for production deliveries in 2024-2026. The SM-31T as proposed will be produced in the USA. Stavatti has secured Letters of Intent (LOIs) for the delivery of over 60 SM-31 Stilettos by US Allied Air Forces and was awarded the Design Patent for the SM-31 by the USPTO on 23 July 2020.

The Stavatti proposed solution consisted of aircraft alone as well as a comprehensive advanced air training solution that included new aircraft, Ground Based Training Systems (GBTS), spares, ground support and handling equipment, external stores and Contractor Logistical Support (CLS).

Stavatti Aerospace

August 14, 2020

On 14 August 2020 Stavatti received a Letter of Intent (LOI) from a US Allied Air Force to upgrade more than 70 twin engine 4th generation Multi-Role Fighter (MRF) aircraft with new sensors, avionics, displays, electronic countermeasures, powerplants, wheels and brakes with US manufactured components and systems. Stavatti will also provide a structural life-improvement of the aircraft as well as install conformal fuel tanks and underwing external stores pylons that are compatible with towed decoys as well as the carriage and deployment of the AIM-9X and AIM-120C.

The upgrade will significantly improve the combat capability of the MRF aircraft, adding features including an AESA radar, wide-area flat panel LCD displays, new tires/wheels/brakes, a modern IRST. The upgrade will result in an MRF with a 59% increase in tactical radius, a 126% increase in maximum external warload, an 11% increase in maximum level speed, a 28% increase in maximum sea level climb rate, a 27% increase in Maximum Take-Off Weight and a 12% increase in maximum service ceiling over the original baseline aircraft. Stavatti also projects over a 9% reduction in aircraft Cost Per Flight Hour (CPFH) over the original type.

The upgrade will be performed by Stavatti Aerospace Ltd in the United States with Stavatti providing in-country maintenance, spares and contractor logistical support for the end-user. Stavatti estimates that the total global market for this upgrade may exceed 18 nations over the next decade.
