TORONTO, February 7, 2011 - Magellan Aerospace Corporation announced today that an agreement has been
reached between Airbus and Magellan Aerospace (UK) Limited securing a further
work package, Crown Fittings, on Airbus' new A350 XWB. It is expected to
generate revenues in excess of $US 20 million over the next ten years.

The contract requires the machining and treatment of complex machined
aluminium lithium detail components, and delivery to the final assembly line
in Toulouse, France. The first deliveries of the contracted 800 shipsets will
be made in April, 2011.

Jim Butyniec, Magellan's President and CEO, discussed the importance of
participation on the A350 XWB program and Magellan's continued drive to
secure major work packages on Airbus aircraft. He commented, "This package,
together with Magellan's existing A350 XWB work on the Centre Wing Box and
the Pylon Secondary Structure, augments Magellan's position on this exciting
new program."

Production will take place at Magellan's facilities in the UK at
Bournemouth, with new investment in machining capacity to be phased in as the
production rate increases from 2012. These future investments demonstrate
Magellan Corporation's commitment to developing world class manufacturing
facilities focussed on core competencies.
