Safran Nacelles is one of the main integrators of aircraft engine nacelle systems in the world. On the long-range commercial aircraft market, Safran Nacelles is the partner of the main aircraft manufacturers, Airbus and Boeing. On the Airbus A380, the nacelle systems designed by Safran Nacelles - the first in the world to be equipped with an electrically-actuated thrust reverser - are a technological reference
Airbus A340 -500/-600 Nacelle Systems
Safran Nacelles nacelle systems equip the Airbus A340 -500/-600 powered by four Rolls-Royce Trent 500 engines
The A340 -500/-600 Safran Nacelles nacelle systems incorporate a cascade thrust reverser composed of 40% of composite materials. They benefit from an improvement in the acoustic treatment of the air inlet.
The A340 -500/-600, whose program was started in December 1997, came into service in August 2002.
