I'm currently in the process of applying at aerospace companies in the USA for summer internships for engineering. I just need some ideas on companies to apply to. I already applied at the obvious Boeing, GE, P&W, Rolls Royce, General Dynamics, Norhtrop and Cessna. Can anyone help me add to the list? Companies located in or around Chicago are even better

Go on Monster or Hotjobs, there are a number of smaller manufacturers that can be considered aerospace.
Trick is that you want to seach in cities where there where significant manufacturing activity-Particularly military
My suggestions for places to search.
Texas-lots of manufacteres, General Dynamics, Mooney, Vought, Dee Howard
LA-San Deigo-lots of companies-Lockheed and Northrop in Palmdale
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

These companies are getting so big that there are lots of places you can go...even Boeing, you have Seattle, Chicago, Wichita, St. Louis, Huntsville, etc. etc. etc...Sikorsky has Stratford CT, Fort Worth, Huntsville, West Palm Beach...Lockheed has Fort Worth, Palmdale, Marietta, etc. etc. etc. I feel like you can pick anywhere and be within earshot of an aerospace company. It's a great industry to work for, I love it.
Now, I currently live in Kansas, and if you're willing to consider it, head to Wichita...you have Boeing, Spirit AeroSystems, Learjet, Cessna, Airbus, Hawker Beechcraft, and even an Air Force base...it's a GREAT place for this industry. There are lots of flights connecting ICT to Chicago, and the drive is about 10.5 hours give or take.
