Long Global Aeronautics (LGA) specializes in distributing electrical and structural components to over 4,500 F-16 aircraft worldwide. LGA is based only 4 miles away from Lockheed Martin in Fort Worth, Texas, where the first F-16 was created. LGA is a certified HUBZone corporation and a registered Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) entity.
The specific F-16 electrical components LGA distributes are electrical wiring harnesses, cockpit panels, relay panels, circuit breaker panels, ground support equipment, and modification kits. The F-16 structural components that LGA carries include bulkheads, wings, wing box components, wing fixed trailing edges, flaperons, horizontal tails, horizontal leading edges, vertical tail leading edges and antennas, rudders, and ventral fins.
One of the things that sets LGA apart from other companies is their business status. LGA fills four particular categories according to government regulations including 1) Small Business, 2) Women Owned Business, 3) Economically Disadvantaged Business, and 4) HubZone Business.
LGA meets all the requirements of AS9120 and is soon to be fully registered. An AS9120 certification is the standard requirement for a Quality Management System. This signifies that they’re qualified to distribute aircraft components. This kind of certification ensures that they can handle the materials properly and track all the parts from OEM to customer.
