Safran Nacelles is one of the main integrators of aircraft engine nacelle systems in the world. On the business jet market for which Safran Nacelles has notably developed thrust reverser concepts (PERT? and Butterfly), Safran Nacelles is the partner of the main aircraft manufacturers: Bombardier, Dassault, Gulfstream, Learjet, Cessna, Embraer, etc.
Nacelle Systems for long-range business jets
Nacelles systems will equip future long-range business jets, powered by Silvercrest? engines from Safran Aircraft Engines.
Nacelle systems equipped with the PERT? thrust reverser and specifically developed with Safran Aircraft Engines for the Silvercrest? jet engine will offer a single, fully-Integrated Powerplant System (IPPS) with state-of-the-art technology.
It has been designed to reduce fuel consumption, improve performance and facilitate maintenance on the engines. With the increased use of composite materials for lighter weight, more extensive acoustic treatment (notably at the air inlet) and the improved aerodynamic design of the nacelle systems, Safran Nacelles' high-tech solutions can be found at all levels.
The nacelle's patented PERT? (Planar Exit Rear Target) thrust reverser from Safran Nacelles is a proven design with two pivoting doors that serve as the engine's exhaust exit during flight, and are deployed on landing for the reverse thrust function. This concept combines thrust reverser efficiency with a saving in weight.
