JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
The company announced a contract, to design, engineer, develop and manufacture the inlet, nacelle and thrust reverser – and provide propulsion system build‐up – for Pratt & Whitney Canada’s new PurePower PW814GA and PW815GA engines to be used on the Gulfstream G500 & G600 aircraft.
These will be the latest generation aircraft from Gulfstream, a world‐renowned manufacturer of premium business jets since 1958.The suite of revolutionary features that NORDAM brings to these P&WC powerplants is impressive: There is an all‐composite asymmetrical pivot door thrust reverser; cowl doors constructed using automated fiber‐placement (AFP); a one‐piece, composite, double‐degree‐offreedom acoustic inlet‐barrel liner; and use of AFP “out of autoclave” vacuum‐bag cured material. The result is one of the best aerodynamic and acoustic performance at the lowest possible weight which maximizes fuel efficiency.About Nordam:Headquartered in Tulsa and employing 2,500 people across nine facilities on three continents,the company is one of the world’s largest independently owned aerospace companies. The firm designs, certifies and manufactures integrated propulsion systems, nacelles and thrust reversers for business jets; builds composite aircraft structures, interior shells, custom cabinetry and radomes; and manufactures aircraft transparencies, such as cabin windows, wing‐tip lens assemblies and flight deck windows. The company also is a major third‐party provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services to the military, commercial airline and air freight markets.More information: www.nordam.com
