This year’s event included the public debut of Nexcelle’s nacelle for the Passport integrated propulsion system (IPS), which powers Bombardier’s Global 7000 business jet.
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.
It’s a great feeling of achievement when a complex product comes together after years of development.
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 biennial Paris Air Show always is an important aerospace industry gathering, and this year’s event was especially well-timed for Nexcelle.
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.
