I wonder if any of our Aerospace gurus on A.net could help me out with some manufacturing related info, or point me in the right direction as to where I could find it...
I am trying to get a sense of three pieces of information:
1. How many labour hours (approx) goes into the manufacture of a small B&GA aircraft such as a small Gulfstream, King Air 200, P180, Citation CJ2/CJ3 or something in that size group
2. Since hours don't necessarily translate into days, what is the approximate number of production days involved in making such an aircraft? (same aircraft as in Question 1)
3. Cost of labour in aircraft assembly: I'm interested in approximately what hourly wage aerospace manufacturing workers get paid (in North America).
I'm putting together a study of the these three criteria for the aircraft mentioned (and similar aircraft) and if anyone can help me out with some of this rather obscure data, I would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance
