Associated Aircraft is an AWE facility for 1956-1993 and a DOE facility for 1994-1995 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims for the AWE years and both Part B and Part E claims for the DOE years.
Former Associate Aircraft Tool & Manufacturing facility at 3660 Dixie Highway, Fairfield, Ohio, is an operating machine shop covering approximately 20,000 to 25,000 square feet. In 1956, the Atomic Energy Commission and National Lead of Ohio contracted with Associate Aircraft to machine hollow uranium slugs for the Hanford and Savannah River reactors. Associate Aircraft machined approximately 96,000 slugs during the contract period. A survey conducted in June 1992 indicated uranium contamination in some concrete expansion joints and on the upper side of roof support beams.
Associate Aircraft is classified as an AWE and a DOE site so workers are eligible for both Part B and Part E compensation.
