May 2 (Reuters) - Aircraft component maker Spirit Aerosystems Holdings Inc’s quarterly profit nearly doubled, partly helped by strong demand for large commercial aircraft.
Net income rose to $153.6 million, or $1.07 per share, in the first quarter ended April 3, from $81.2 million, or 57 cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue rose 20 percent to $1.73 billion.
