Aircelle and Applied Composites Engineering expand services agreement

  • 16-Apr-2012 01:25 EDT

The Safran group's Aircelle business unit signed an agreement to enlarge the scope of jet engine thrust reverser and nacelle repair and services performed by Applied Composites Engineering (ACE) in the U.S., building on three years of successful cooperation. This new agreement sets the framework to expand ACE's maintenance, repair, overhaul, and services activities for Aircelle with jet engines that power regional airlines and business jets in the Americas. It follows the work performed by ACE since early 2009 on Aircelle-manufactured thrust reversers on three regional airliners, for the following platforms: Embraer's ERJ 145, powered by AE 3007 jet engines; along with the Embraer 170 and 175, which are equipped with CF34 engines. During a three-year period, ACE has processed several hundred thrust reversers at its Indianapolis, IN, facility, demonstrating the company's capabilities to deliver high-quality, efficient, and on-time work.
