In September 2019, the Company announced receiving a multi-year contract from TAI to manufacture window assemblies on up to 104 T70 aircraft over an estimated 5-year period. The combined orders received to date under this contract total $2.1 million against a ceiling price of $4.6M. The Company expects to begin deliveries on these most recent orders in 2021.
