By leveraging our expertise in advanced manufacturing and systems integration, we’re bringing lighter, more fuel efficient products to the next generation of aircraft components.

A350 Nacelle Enhancement Program (NEP)

We collaborated with Airbus to enhance the nacelle, which includes the fan cowl, thrust reverser, exhaust system and other equipment items -- saving approximately 270 lbs. per aircraft. And the lighter the aircraft, the higher the fuel efficiency.

Composite materials and advanced manufacturing

Our Center of Excellence in Banbury (UK) develops composite fuel pipes to replace heavier metal components.

New materials for the next generation of flight

We’re looking at new materials to use across a number of applications—nacelles, next-generation aircraft seating, landing gear, among others—that will each contribute to a more sustainable aviation future.
