Every two years, it’s “all roads lead to Le Bourget” as the world’s aerospace industry comes together in early summer for the Paris Air Show.
Today marked a tremendous milestone for Nexcelle, as our C919 nacelle system demonstrated its capabilities from the very first flight of this new Chinese-built jetliner.
2017 marks another important year for Nexcelle, and I am pleased to be leading the company as its vision for a new generation of integrated propulsion systems (IPS) becomes a reality.
As the C919 program moves into its flight test and industrial phases, Nexcelle is demonstrating our joint venture’s reactivity to support its role as the innovation nacelle system supplier for China’s newest jetliner.
Two Integrated Propulsion Systems (IPS) with Nexcelle technologies became a reality in 2015, with our nacelle programs for the GE Aviation Passport and CFM International LEAP-1C engines achieving new milestones during the past 12 months: flight testing of the Passport nacelle; and certification testing for both the Passport and the LEAP-1C nacelles.
It’s a great feeling of achievement when a complex product comes together after years of development. At Nexcelle, we’ve reached such a milestone with our nacelle system for GE Aviation’s Passport – as the first two of these engines are now installed on the initial Bombardier Global 7000 Flight Test Vehicle (FTV1). These powerplants are […]
As Nexcelle moves from the development phase for its nacelle products on integrated propulsion systems to the industrial phase, our management team also has evolved. The initial change is a transition of our Technical Director position to a new definition as Director of Operations. Philippe Gassin has been named to this post, with responsibilities of overseeing […]
The biennial Paris Air Show always is an important aerospace industry gathering, and this year’s event was especially well-timed for Nexcelle – being held as we deliver nacelles for the no. 1 flight test aircraft on both programs in which our joint venture is a supplier: COMAC’s C919 jetliner, and the Bombardier Global 7000/Global 8000 […]
Nexcelle’s strengths come from the design, development and production know-how of its parent companies – GE Aviation’s Middle River Aircraft Systems and Aircelle of the Safran group. Within the Nexcelle management structure, the responsibility of overseeing program execution and operations at the parents is assigned to our two Executive Vice Presidents. Those appointed to the […]
2015 is an important year for our integrated propulsion system (IPS) on the LEAP-1C engine for China’s COMAC C919 jetliner. We are delivering hardware for the initial flight test aircraft – beginning with the no. 1 C919’s rollout later this year – and Nexcelle’s team at Shanghai is busy supporting our activities for the LEAP-1C […]
