NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition – Orlando, November 1, 2016
Safran Power Units has announced the designation of its two latest APUs for the business jet market.
These name changes are part of the full acquisition in 2014 from Pratt & Whitney of two strategic programs currently under development.
These new names indicate the basic power rating in kilowatts of the turbines and the aircraft manufacturer application. In accordance with this new nomenclature, that will apply to future business jet APU's, the following changes will be made:
- APU for the Dassault Aviation Falcon 5X is now designated SPU150[DA],
- APU for the Bombardier Global 7000* and 8000* is now designated SPU300[BA].
The SPU150[DA] and SPU300[BA] are state-of-the-art electric and pneumatic power sources. The SPU150[DA] is specially designed for midsize and super midsize business jets. The SPU300[BA] is meant for long range, high performance business jets.
Safran Power Units is committed to providing reliable and competitive power systems and services to meet the demands of new generation business jets.
