Sino Swearingen, Gamesa Take Squabble to Court

Sino Swearingen, developer of the SJ30-2 business jet, and Spain’s Gamesa Aeronautica are suing each other over an alleged breach of contract. As previously reported, Sino Swearingen selected Aerostructures in Nashville, Tenn., to replace Gamesa as the supplier of SJ30-2 fuselage sections, blaming Gamesa for contributing to the airplane’s development delays by providing components that did not meet quality standards. Gamesa claims that excessive design revisions forced it to continually make time-consuming changes to the airframe-fabrication process.
