Aircelle Services Americas has inaugurated its new 1,580m² facility at Indianapolis, IN. This started with regional aircraft and business jets and has now been expanded to nacelles for single-aisle and widebody airliners. This facility is the latest expansion of Aircelle’s global MRO network and marks its first dedicated facility in the United States, covering not only the US but also Canada and Mexico, as well as Central and South America. In addition to metallic repairs, Aircelle Services Americas is specialised in composites work.

 

The company is currently certified for nacelle maintenance, repair and overhaul on the Embraer ERJ135 and ERJ145 equipped with Rolls-Royce AE 3007 engines; along with the Embraer E170 and E175, which utilise GE CF34-8E powerplants. In addition, the facility is qualified for MRO work on business jet engine types that include: the Rolls-Royce BR710, for Bombardier’s Global 5000/6000 and the Gulfstream G550; the Honeywell HTF7000 on Bombardier’s Challenger 300/350, the Embraer Legacy 450/500 and Gulfstream G280; as well as Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PW307 for the Dassault Falcon 7X.

 

Aircelle Services Americas’ MRO capabilities are quickly expanding to other Aircelle-produced nacelles, beginning with CFM International CFM56-5 engines that power the Airbus A320 Family, the Pratt & Whitney PW6000 for Airbus A318, the PowerJet SaM146 powerplants on twin-engine Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional aircraft, and Rolls-Royce Trent 700s for the Airbus A330. Future coverage will enable the Indianapolis operation to handle other Aircelle-produced nacelles, such as the CFM International LEAP-1A powerplants for the future Airbus A320neo Family and Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 for the A330neo.
