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

Quoting Sovietjet (Thread starter):

You left out a big one: Lockheed-Martin.
You can also try NASA if you're interested in space.

Also, try TIMCO. At least at their base in GSO, they do upgrades to aircraft (winglets, cabin refits, etc.), though they have bases at other airports too.

Dunno who has offices in Chicago (aside from Boeing). However:

Aerospace Corp.
MIT/Lincoln Lab
BAE Systems
Sikorsky (along with P&W, is part of United Technologies Corp)
Hamilton Sundstrand (also part of UTC)
L-3 Communications
Parker Aerospace

There are many, many more.

I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

Thanks Vikkyvik. Any more ideas? Applied at all the above already  Smile . Maybe perhaps a website that lists all aerospace companies(too good to be true?)

Don't forget the GA and bizjet manufacturers: Cirrus, Mooney, Piper, Beechcraft, and Gulfstream to name a few.

You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.

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.

Seattle-Boeing Country
St. Louis-Douglas
Texas-lots of manufacteres, General Dynamics, Mooney, Vought, Dee Howard
Rochester-Harris electronics,
Long Island-Grumman
LA-San Deigo-lots of companies-Lockheed and Northrop in Palmdale
Tuscan-DM, Raytheon

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.
