Cessna Citation Longitude® Thrust Reversers
Safran Nacelles PERT® type thrust reversers will equip the Cessna Citation Longitude®, powered by two Honeywell HTF7700L turbofan engines.
The patented PERT® (Planar Exit Rear Target) thrust reverser is a proven design with two pivoting doors that serve as the engine's exhaust exit during flight, and are deployed on landing for the reverse thrust function. This concept combines thrust reverser effectiveness with an optimized weight.
Safran Nacelles produces PERT thrust reversers for numerous business jet applications, with more than 1,200 delivered as of late 2015.
