CURTISS-WRIGHT FLIGHT SYSTEMS RECEIVES McDONNELL AIRCRAFT CO.'S
 HIGHEST SUPPLIER QUALITY CERTIFICATION
 ST. LOUIS, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Curtiss-Wright Flight Systems (NYSE: CW) of Fairfield, N.J., is the first firm to receive McDonnell Aircraft Co.'s highest supplier quality certification.
 William L. Stowers, vice president of procurement at McDonnell Aircraft, will present the company's gold-level preferred supplier certification to Robert Mutch, president of Curtiss-Wright Flight Systems, in a ceremony beginning at 1 p.m., Aug. 13 at the Curtiss- Wright plant, 300 Fairfield Road. Also scheduled to attend is Rep. Dean Gallo (R-N.J).
 In a letter to Mutch, McDonnell Aircraft President John P. Capellupo said, "Your achievement places you at the forefront of the aerospace industry, leading the way toward a new era in American manufacturing." Curtiss-Wright is a finalist in Industry Week magazine's 1992 search for America's best plants.
 Curtiss-Wright Flight Systems earned a gold-level certification for consistently high quality work on F/A-18 Hornet canopy actuators, which the company has made since 1976.
 To earn a gold-level certification, suppliers must demonstrate the ability to maintain at least a 99 percent on-time delivery record for 12 months, and at least a 99 percent acceptance quality rate for the parts or components they deliver over a 12-month period. Curtiss-Wright scored 100 percent on both.
 Suppliers also are examined and rated on several key business practices, such as management, quality, delivery, cost, technology and customer support. Suppliers also must show successful implementation of statistical process control. McDonnell Aircraft began its preferred supplier certification program in 1989.
