Flyer Defense operates a dedicated low volume manufacturing and assembly facilities in Inglewood and Los Angeles, California. Both facilities benefit from their proximity to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and a robust vendor and supplier base. These vendors compliment all aspects of the manufacture and build operation to provide seamless production.
Lean manufacture and flexible production lines is the cornerstone of the Flyer Defense build strategy.Our set up is extremely robust to both low and high volumes without the necessity for additional production lines and associated tooling.
Production capacity is purposely based on manual labor, with the flexibility to add a more mechanized arrangement with dedicated welding robots. This is well understood and accounted for and further strengthens the total program build plan and capability.
Flyer implements the use of critical automotive tools and practices including Advanced Production Quality Plan (APQP) and Production Part Approval Process (PPAP).
