Aircelle Is Selected To Supply Its PERT® Thrust Reverser For Cessna's Longitude Business Jet

LE BOURGET, France, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Cessna's new Citation Longitude business jet will utilize the patented PERT® thrust reverser from Aircelle (Safran), which will equip the aircraft's two Silvercrest jet engines built by Snecma, which also is part of Safran.

The PERT® agreement - which includes supply of the thrust reversers and product support to Cessna - was signed today by Aircelle Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Vincent Mascré and Justin Salmans, the Cessna Aircraft Company's Senior Vice President of Procurement.

"This is Aircelle's first thrust reverser application on a Cessna aircraft, and we are committing our full resources to support our newest customer," Mascré said. "This marks an important new expansion of Aircelle's presence in the international business jet market."

The patented PERT (Planar Exit Rear Target) thrust reverser is a proven design with two blocker doors that serve as the engine's exhaust exit during flight, and are deployed on landing for the reverse thrust function. This concept provides and combines thrust reverser effectiveness with an optimized weight. For its application on Cessna's Citation Longitude, Aircelle will increase the use of composite materials and apply additional advanced acoustic treatment.

"With our selection of PERT, the Citation Longitude will benefit from a proven - and improved - design and Aircelle's recognized expertise in thrust reverser design, production and customer support," Salmans stated.

Cessna's Citation Longitude is the company's entry into the super midsize business jet category, setting new standards in private business travel for cabin efficiency, technology, luxury and comfort.

The next-generation Snecma Silvercrest® engine has a takeoff thrust rating of 11,000 lbs. on the Citation Longitude, and includes state-of-the art technologies for high performance and reliability.

Citation Longitude, PERT and Silvercrest are registered trade marks from, respectively, Cessna, Aircelle and Snecma.
