A track record of excellence: Aircelle once again is honored with Gulfstream Aerospace supplier award
August 8, 2014
For the ninth consecutive year, Aircelle's supplier excellence has been recognized with a Gulfstream Aerospace "Supplier of the Year" award for flight control spoilers that equip the Gulfstream 450 business jet.
This announcement was made at Gulfstream's annual supplier conference, held during June in the aircraft manufacturer's home city of Savannah, Georgia, USA. Aircelle has received the award every year since 2005.
Installed on upper wing surfaces of the G450, the flight control spoilers are deployed to reduce lift. Production of these components is carried out at Aircelle's Burnley facility in the U.K.
"This award brings with it huge prestige and is a great honor for the Burnley site as it recognizes our significant achievements in the eyes of a major customer," said Programme Manager Ged Garry.
Aircelle is a leading player in business aircraft equipment and a worldwide reference in nacelle system integration. In addition to spoilers, the company supplies thrust reversers for Gulfstream business jets.
