With the selection of PERT, Cessna's Longitude will benefit from a mature and proven design, as well as Aircelle's extensive expertise in developing, manufacturing and building thrust reversers
for business jets," said Aircelle Chief Executive Officer Jean-Paul Alary.
The PERT[R] thrust reverser
from Aircelle (Safran) has been selected by Cessna Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc.
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.
This resulted in the hook losing hold on the TR sleeve, and allowed the thrust reverser
to deploy unexpectedly.
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

CINCINNATI -- Nexcelle, the nacelle systems joint venture of GE's Middle River Aircraft Systems and the Safran group's Aircelle, has completed a successful test program for the advanced thrust reverser
element of its next-generation Integrated Propulsion System (IPS) technology.
The workload of Aircelle Europe Services' MRO activity has grown considerably since the company's creation in 2002, and this new facility provides additional volume needed to handle our current thrust reverser
and nacelle products, while also opening capacity for the new nacelles from Aircelle's program wins in recent years, in particular on A320neo and A330neo" said Aircelle Chairman and CEO Martin Sion.
US-based UTC Aerospace Systems' Aerostructures business has formally inaugurated a new building focused exclusively to production of thrust reversers
and the integration of nacelle systems for the Airbus A350 XWB at its Toulouse France site.
These serviceable spare thrust reversers
will be available to worldwide customers on a 24/7 support basis.
The pilots did not deploy thrust reversers
