Aircelle produces the PERT thrust reverser
for numerous aircraft applications, with more than 1,200 delivered to date.
The thrust reverser
was validated with Nexcelle's new nacelle demonstrator, called PANACHE (Pylon And Nacelle Advanced Configuration for High Efficiency), which logged a combined total of more than 47 hours in operation on Test Stand 3E at GE Aviation's Peebles, Ohio facility.
Aircelle Europe Services is capable of handling all of the nacelles and thrust reversers
in Aircelle's portfolio, which are used on engines that power some 20 different aircraft types - from business jets and regional airliners to the world's largest passenger jetliners.
The opening of the building, operated by Goodrich Aerospace Europe SAS features an innovative robotic thrust reverser
The agreement formalises details of the relationship between the two companies on the development, production and delivery of the nacelle and thrust reverser
for the GE Passport 20 integrated propulsion system, which will be used on the new Bombardier Global 7000 and 8000 business jet aircraft.
The agreement includes thrust reverser
refurbishment and use of rotable assets.
The company, a subsidiary of TI Group, has been chosen by Hurel-Dubois, one of the world's leading suppliers of aircraft engine components, as its preferred supplier of thrust reverser
These nacelles are composed of the air inlet, fan cowl doors, nozzle and engine mounts, along with Aircelle's Papillon (butterfly) two-door thrust reverser
The features include a low drag front end with single-piece air inlet; a fan cowl which is structurally integrated to the engine; a translating O-duct thrust reverser
that provides improved fan flowpath while eliminating door links, lower bifurcation, latches and split lines; and the new integrated mounting system for reduced engine distortion and enhanced on-wing performance.
El Pais, citing sources at the airline, reported last week that Spanair disabled the right engine's thrust reverser
three days before the accident.
It will also supply a thrust reverser
system for Bombardier Aerospace's new CRJ700 regional jet.
CINCINNATI -- Nexcelle will provide the nacelle and thrust reverser
for GE's TechX integrated powerplant that has been selected to power the new Bombardier Global 7000 and 8000 business jet aircraft, marking the second major program win for this international joint venture company.
