Safran Nacelles is one of the two main integrators of aircraft engine nacelle systems in the world. With more than 20,000 equipment in service, Safran Nacelles proposes a range of nacelle systems to suit each type of aircraft: regional jets, business jets and commercial aircraft of more than 100 seats for medium- and long-range travel.
Safran Nacelles designs, integrates and ensures customer support and services for aircraft engine nacelle systems. The know-how of the 3,700 Safran Nacelles personnel and its unique technological lead means that Safran Nacelles can integrate all the nacelle systems components and thus optimize the aircraft propulsion systems. Safran Nacelles is at the interface between the aircraft manufacturer, engine manufacturer and the airline company. This knowledge of aerospace companies combined with its expertise allows Safran Nacelles to propose unique solutions: nacelle systems which are lighter – thanks to the use of a high proportion of composite materials or metal alloys – quieter, smarter, more electric and easier to maintain.
Key Programs & Programs in Development
The 3,700 men and women working for Safran Nacelles put their passion at the service of customers. Through their expertise and their know-how, the company has developed engine nacelle systems used on engines that power many jetliners. This includes CFM International’s LEAP-1A on the Airbus A320neo; the LEAP-1C engine for COMAC’s C919, and Rolls-Royce’s Trent 7000 on the Airbus A330neo. Safran Nacelles is the only nacelle systems integrator for the two engines on the Airbus A380 (Rolls-Royce’s Trent 900 and the Engine Alliance GP7200). The company also produces titanium nozzles for the GE Aviation GE9X powerplants on Boeing’s 777X jetliner. In the business aviation sector, Safran Nacelles provides nacelle system hardware for numerous aircraft types, including the Bombardier Global 7500, which is powered by GE PassportTM engines.
