Just when the community was growing accustomed to the transitional name Mid-Western Aircraft Systems, the new company christened itself Spirit Aerosystems Tuesday. The name will take some getting used to in a place with as much history tied up with Boeing, whose selling of its Wichita commercial operation to Onex Corp. created the new company. But Spirit Aerosystems has a nice, fresh sound to it â€” modern, high tech, flexible, diversified and bigger than Wichita. Here’s hoping the company’s future reflects the optimism of its new name.
