Safran has delivered the 2,000th thrust reverser for the Honeywell HTF7000 engine family.
The 2,000 thrust reversers have been designed and manufactured by Safran Nacelles for nearly 20 years at its UK site in Burnley, positioning the company as the leading manufacturer of thrust reversers for business jets.
The thrust reversers have been supplied to various customers to serve a number of aircraft and engine variations, including Bombardier Challenger 300/350, Embraer Legacy 450/500, Gulfstream G280 and Textron Cessna Citation Longitude.
Safran underlines that the efficiency and quality of production is increasing over time. The assembly line in Burnley has been re-engineered into a single stepping line to support the four different customer variants of the product, which is also produced without any quality notices.
As well as producing thrust reversers for HTF7000 engines, Safran Nacelles also provides business jet nacelles for the Dassault Falcon 7X and Falcon 8X aircraft, the Bombardier Global 5000, 6000 and 7000, and the Gulfstream G550.
