Please Support Adding Super Hornets and Growlers to the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget
Send Letters to President Obama and Congress : 22,252 Letters Sent So Far
Currently, the Fiscal Year 2016 President’s Budget Request does not include funding for continued production of either the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet or EA-18G Growler, both aircraft produced on the same manufacturing line. Part of our military strength lies in the ability to produce the weapons platforms our servicemen and women need. The F/A-18 production line is the only aircraft production line with the ability to build operational strike fighters for the Navy today and AEA aircraft for the entire Department of Defense. If aircraft are not added to the budget this year, production could prematurely end
Some of our main products are F-18, F-15, C-17, CH-47H, and parts for the 777X.
