Aircelle opens first U.S. facility in Indianapolis
Aircelle (Safran) formally inaugurated the Aircelle Services Americas facility at Indianapolis, Indiana, on April 13th, bringing the company’s expertise in maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) for its jet engine nacelles that are operational across North and South America. The 17,000-ft² MRO shop provides high quality, cost effective and reliable maintenance solutions matched to customers’ needs, having started with Aircelle-manufactured nacelles for regional aircraft and business jets – and now expanding to nacelles for single-aisle and widebody airliners. This facility marks the latest expansion of Aircelle’s global MRO network, and is the company’s first dedicated facility in the United States. Its area of responsibility covers the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Central and South America. In addition to metallic repairs, Aircelle Services Americas is specialized in composites work – which is particularly important with the increasing amount of composite materials utilized in jet engine nacelles.
