Safran System Aerostructures - Excellence in composite materials

Safran Nacelles is a leading worldwide nacelle market for aircraft engines. 

Safran System Aerostructures is specialized in the conception and production of composite elements for airliners, regional aircrafts, executive jets and helicopters.
In Florange, the historical headquarters of the company specializes in the areas of production, quality, industrialization and finance.

Safran System Aerostructures, a 100 % subsidiary of Safran Nacelles, is specialized in complex aerostructures for airliners, regional aircraft and helicopters.

Extensive know how

Since its creation in 1979, Safran System Aerostructures has established itself as the specialist in complex metal and composite aerostructures for airplanes and helicopters. From design to support in service, not to mention industrialization, manufacturing and assembly, Safran System Aerostructures deploys a modular offer, adapted to the needs of its customers.

Strong added value

40 years of experience in the development of aerostructures has given Safran System Aerostructures a unique ability to offer its customers the best compromise between metal and composite structures, in terms of design as well as assembly. This expertise enables it to design products meeting the most demanding standards in terms of performance, regulations, weight and cost.

Diversified Portfolio

Safran System Aerostructures' activity is centered around three large product families:

  • parts located in the engine environment: helicopter cowls, engine and nacelle parts, etc.
  • equipment and cockpits: cockpit console structure, equipment bays
  • mobile parts: landing gear doors, thrust reverser parts, etc.

Fully mastered technologies

In addition to its expertise in development, Safran System Aerostructures controls the entire manufacturing chain for composite materials, from the supply of raw materials to the finished part, including lay-up, trimming, non-destructive testing, paint and assembly.

Effective industrial tools

Significant investments have been made to support the growth of Safran System Aerostructures activities: laser protection equipment for lay-up of composite materials, large autoclaves, lay-up room for high heat performance BMI* materials, acoustic treatment robots, machining and forming means for honeycombs, etc.
