Safran, partner to the GE Passport engine program
In partnership with GE, Techspace Aero (Safran) is developing components for the new Passport engine designed for the future Bombardier Global 7000 and 8000 business jet. Techspace Aero has been participating in GE’s Passport program since late 2011. Designed specifically for the latest additions to the Bombardier Global jet family, the Passport engine will be powering the largest models in the business aircraft sector. Global 8000 will have a range comparable to long-haul aircraft (7,900 miles). Progress on the program is currently up-to-schedule with the timeline determined with the customer.
