CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (CPI Aero ®) (NYSE MKT: CVU) announced today that it has been selected by Sikorsky Aircraft Corp.

Under the terms of the new agreement, CPI Aero will perform all manufacturing tasks for these assemblies, including purchasing all detail parts and components and managing the supply chain. CPI Aero will continue to manufacture fuel panels on an outsource basis as this new agreement transitions into full production during the third quarter of 2013.

Including this new order, total new contract awards from all customers for 2013 is approximately $68 million, as compared to approximately $45 million in new contract awards for the same period in 2012.
