Hartzell Aerospace to Provide APU Inlet, Exhaust Systems for Bombardier CSeries
Hartzell Aerospace signed a $45 million contract to provide the APU inlet and exhaust systems for the Bombardier CSeries aircraft.
The Tailwind Technologies subsidiary said it will use its proprietary noise treatment material, Acousti-Flo 2.2, to ensure that the CSeries APU inlet and exhaust systems are compliant with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) noise management requirement.
Bombardier recently launched the assembly of the test airframe for its CSeries aircraft at its experimental test facility, and expects the CSeries to enter into service in 2013.
“This is a very important win for the Hartzell Aerospace group, as it fits our capabilities and growth strategy while supporting a major new program and successful OEM. The experience working with SAC and Bombardier will position us well for future programs,” said Simon Shakelton, senior vice-president of Hartzell Aerospace.
