A lower fan cowl door for Nexcelle’s nacelle on the Passport integrated propulsion system (IPS) is prepared at GE Aviation’s Middle River Aircraft Systems facility in Maryland. (October 2017)
A composite inner barrel sub-assembly for Nexcelle’s nacelle system is prepared for GE Aviation’s Passport integrated propulsion system at the Middle River Aircraft Systems facility. (October 2017)
Thrust reversers on Nexcelle’s nacelle system for the Bombardier Global 7000 are deployed during the no. 1 Flight Test Vehicle’s (FTV1) touchdown after its maiden flight. (November 2016)
The Nexcelle O-Duct thrust reverser for CFM International’s LEAP-1C jet engine is installed on the no. 1 C919 jetliner at COMAC’s final assembly facility in Shanghai, China. (December 2016)
Nexcelle’s O-Duct thrust reverser is inspected for installation on the C919 jetliner. The O-Duct reduces weight, increases thrust reverser efficiency and facilitates maintenance. (December 2016)
The COMAC C919’s LEAP-1C Integrated Propulsion System – which incorporates Nexcelle’s nacelle and thrust reverser system – is shown at the Chinese jetliner’s unveiling and rollout in Shanghai.
The initial Passport jet engine for Bombardier’s no.1 Global 7000 flight test vehicle is equipped with its Nexcelle nacelle at the GE Aviation Peebles Test Operation in Ohio. (September 2015)
The Nexcelle IPS nacelle system for CFM International’s LEAP-1C went airborne for the first time on October 6, 2014 as flight testing was initiated with GE Aviation’s 747 flying testbed.
This composite bonded component from Middle River Aircraft Systems fits inside the Passport engine’s air inlet, directing airflow into the powerplant. It is Nexcelle’s first manufactured element for the Passport.
Development and production activities at Middle River Aircraft Systems (MRAS) include the nacelle and thrust reverser for GE CF34-10A engines that power China’s new ARJ21 regional jet from the AVIC1 Commercial Aircraft Company.
Safran Nacelles’ product line includes nacelles and thrust reversers for aircraft that range from business and regional jets to widebody airliners, including the Airbus A340-500/600 – for which more than 500 nacelles have been delivered to date.
Nexcelle’s development of the nacelle system for GE Aviation’s Passport business jet engine – which will power the Bombardier Global 7000/Global 8000 business jet – is highlighted in a video displayed during the NBAA 2017 annual convention in Las Vegas.
This corporate video highlights Nexcelle’s nacelle development for the CFM International LEAP-1C integrated propulsion system, which will power COMAC C919 jetliners. The video begins with an English-language version, followed directly by a version in Chinese.
