  • 04-Jan-2010 09:01 EST

Nexcelle is providing the nacelle, thrust reverser, and exhaust system for the new CFM International LEAP-X1C engine, selected as the sole western powerplant to launch China's COMAC C919 jetliner. The Nexcelle design features an advanced inlet configuration, extensive use of composites and acoustic treatment, and an electrically operated thrust reverser. The LEAP-X1C integrated propulsion system, conceived through the working relationship of Nexcelle and CFM, includes a totally new centerline engine that was launched by CFM in mid-2008. In its application on the single-aisle C919, the LEAP-X1C propulsion system is scheduled to enter commercial service in 2016.
