Thrust reverser type Planar Exit Rear Target ®

Engine reference GE Passport™

Aircraft category/class Business Jet

This nacelle integrates a Target-type thrust reverser and a fixed nozzle, and has been treated acoustically.

The Global 7500 nacelle offers an aerodynamic extended monobloc air inlet that reduces aircraft drag.

This thrust reverser concept enables a mass that is optimised through the use of composite materials.

Aerodynamic and robust, the Nexcelle nacelles contribute to both the aircraft and propulsion system performance. They also reduce engine noise and assist in the braking process of the plane on landing. After-sales support is available 24/7.

 

Bombardier Global 7500

In a nutshell

The characteristics of the new GE Passport™ engine’s Nexcelle nacelle include an aluminium monobloc extended air inlet to reduce drag, an innovative anti-icing system, advanced internal acoustic treatments to reduce engine noise, a composite-manufactured fan cowl to simplify maintenance and lighten the mass and a Target-type thrust reverser with a fixed nozzle to reduce the system’s mass and improve its efficiency.

An efficient, proven and optimized system

Safran Nacelles is one of the main worldwide integrators of aircraft engine nacelles.

The thrust reverser as a braking mechanism on landing

The thrust reversers ensure braking of the plane, especially on short, wet, snowy or icy landing strips.

 

Safran Nacelles has expertise in the assembly of aerostructures such as thrust reversers. The company has control over all the parts assembly processes: they are positioned meticulously, adjusted to the structure using shimming, drilling, milling, countersinking, bonding and riveting.

Composites for a lighter mass

The thrust reversers are manufactured from composite materials, which reduces the nacelle mass. Safran Nacelles holds a unique expertise in large composite parts, up to 12m2, with complex shapes (omega shaped) and varying thicknesses.
