Safran Nacelles Services Americas to experience major growth over the next few years

As the first A320neos and A321neos equipped with CFM International's LEAP-1As are starting to cross the skies over North America, we were able to meet Michael Robinson, the new General Manager at Safran Nacelles Services Americas, at MRO Americas Conference & Exhibition which was held in Orlando (Florida) two weeks ago.

Created in February 2015 from a buyout of the MRO activity dedicated to nacelles of Applied Composites Engineering in Indianapolis, Safran Nacelles Services Americas center will be able to provide its technical support to operators of Airbus's re-engined single-aisle aircraft for the American continent.

Michael Robinson explained to us that the Safran Nacelles Services Americas site was now ready to support A320neo nacelles. "We have all the documentation and tools and our teams are ready and trained. It's really a very exciting time for us", he told us.

"The Indianapolis Safran Nacelles site has just taken on staff to increase our level of expertise on nacelles and thrust reversers related to the arrival of the A320neos. We will be seeing real exponential growth over the next 2 to 4 years, accompanied also by the arrival of A330neos and Trent 7000s from 2018", he added.

Michael Robinson also reminded us that Safran Nacelles Services Americas was also present on the nacelles of GE's Passport 20 engine which powers the Bombardier's Global 7000s and soon its Global 8000s. "We can carry out repairs at our site, but we also support test planes with on-wing repairs in Wichita (Kansas), which also provides us expertise with this new platform", he specified. "Our on-wing activity is growing".

The chief executive of Safran Nacelles Services Americas also revealed to us that the site dedicated to LEAP-1A podding in Mobile (Alabama) was ready. The assembly of the first Airbuses in the A320neo family on the Airbus FAL in the United States is therefore only a question of time.
