Not only is the thrust reverser
geometrically complex, but the design objective is a general look at where the plumes go, and the analysis will not be run a great many times.
Mr Geoff Smith, group chief executive at Dowty, said: "This alliance with Hurel-Dubois has given us a breakthrough in supplying Airbus Industrie with thrust reverser
actuation systems, complementing our strong position with Boeing, and endorsing us as the world's pre-eminent supplier of these systems.
The new building includes a 50,000-square-foot thrust reverser
robotic production area with a moving assembly line, a paint shop with an infrared curing tunnel and office space for support functions.
Under terms of the four-year agreement, Aircelle will provide access to large-sized nacelle components, including thrust reversers

The proven PERT thrust reverser
from Aircelle (Safran) has been selected by Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc.
In response to the growing regional demand for the supply, repair and overhaul of GE90 nacelle components, Lufthansa Technik and Spirit AeroSystems will place inventory, including GE90 thrust reversers
and cowlings, in the Lufthansa Technik Middle East Services' headquarter location in Dubai.
We look forward to supporting Boeing and its customers on the CFM56-7 engine thrust reversers
and other programs.
MRAS), a wholly owned subsidiary of GE Aviation, have signed a maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) agreement that allows Lufthansa technik to be MRAS's authorized service provider for the thrust reverser
on the GEnx-2B engines that power the Boeing 747-8 aircraft.
In 2008, Spirit AeroSystems received a contract to provide overhaul, repair, and modification services for Cathay Pacific Airways' fleet of Boeing (NYSE: BA) 777 Trent 800 thrust reversers
For North American customers, "this would support a coast-to-coast operation where LHT employees from California to New York will supply all maintenance stations throughout the network with LRUs," including cabin interior furnishings and fittings as well as large components such as thrust reversers
Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, the company is a joint venture of Aircelle and Middle River Aircraft Systems (MRAS), which are leading suppliers of engine nacelles, thrust reversers
