S.S. White Technologies (Hall 4 Stand A4) has been selected to provide flexible rotary shafts for the Pratt & Whitney PW1000G engine’s nacelle. The shafts will transfer power on the variable area fan nozzle (VAFN) and synchronize actuators on the thrust reversers. The U.S. company has already provided two flexible rotary shafts for the thrust reverser rig, and previously supplied two flexible shafts for the VAFN test setup.

China’s homegrown Comac C919 will be the first airliner in the world to fly with a truly integrated propulsion system (IPS) combining engines with nacelles for improved overall efficiency. The IPS concept is being pioneered by Nexcelle, a joint company formed last year by GE Aviation’s Middle River Aircraft Systems and the Safran group’s Aircelle. GE and Safran also jointly own CFM International, supplier of the C919’s Leap X1C engine.
