SAFRAN CEL­E­BRATES FIRST FLIGHT OF AIR­BUS A330NEO

SP's Airbuz - - News Briefs -

Safran is cel­e­brat­ing the first flight of the Air­bus A330neo, the lat­est member of the Air­bus A330 wide­body twin-en­gine fam­ily.

Safran is a ma­jor sup­plier on this new jet­liner, lev­er­ag­ing its ex­per­tise to pro­vide the en­gine na­celles and power trans­mis­sion, land­ing gear, wheels and car­bon brakes, wiring and other elec­tri­cal sys­tems, and the data load­ing sys­tem.

Safran Elec­tri­cal & Power’s con­tri­bu­tion to the A330neo re­flects the scope of ex­per­tise de­vel­oped by Safran in equip­ping to­day’s “more elec­tric” air­craft. The com­pany sup­plies the gen­er­a­tor in the air­craft’s APU (Aux­il­iary Power Unit), which is also used as a motor to start the APU, which in turn starts the jet en­gines, as well as the elec­tri­cal cab­i­nets that dis­trib­ute the power needed to ac­tu­ate the flight con­trols and con­trol var­i­ous sys­tems, such as brakes, as well as all elec­tri­cal wiring on the air­craft.

The land­ing gear, wheels and car­bon brakes are de­vel­oped by Safran Land­ing Sys­tems. In fact, Safran is the world’s lead­ing sup­plier of car­bon brakes for main­line com­mer­cial jets (over 100 seats).
