OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Commuter Air Technology (CAT), an AGC Aerospace & Defense company headquartered in Oklahoma City, was recognized as one of the Journal Record’s Innovator of the Year Honorees for its special mission aircraft enhancements, particularly the CAT 350ME (maximum endurance) upgrades for the King Air airframe.
“We are proud to be recognized as an innovator in the aerospace industry for work we perform here in the U.S. and globally,” said Darryl Wilkerson, CAT President. “This recognition reflects the commitment of our employees to provide quality products and services to customers worldwide.”
CAT’s team of professionals has consistently developed innovative products to improve the performance and safety of King Air aircrafts, establishing the company as a leader in the Aerospace and Defense industry.
