Pratt & Whitney selected Goodrich Corp. to be the exclusive provider of the complete nacelle systems for its new Geared Turbofan engine for both the Mitsubishi Regional Jet and the Bombardier CSeries aircraft families. The award is expected to generate more than $5 billion in OE and aftermarket revenue for Goodrich during the 25-year period following entry into service. Under the agreement, the Goodrich Aerostructures business unit, headquartered in Chula Vista, CA, will produce the entire nacelle systems, including the inlet, fan cowl, thrust reverser, exhaust system, and engine mounts.
