“This is Aircelle’s first thrust reverser application on a Cessna aircraft, and we are committing our full resources to support our newest customer,” Mascré said. “This marks an important new expansion of Aircelle’s presence in the international business jet market.”

The patented PERT (Planar Exit Rear Target) thrust reverser is a proven design with two blocker doors that serve as the engine’s exhaust exit during flight, and are deployed on landing for the reverse thrust function. This concept provides and combines thrust reverser effectiveness with an optimized weight. For its application on Cessna’s Citation Longitude, Aircelle will increase the use of composite materials and apply additional advanced acoustic treatment.

“With our selection of PERT, the Citation Longitude will benefit from a proven – and improved – design and Aircelle’s recognized expertise in thrust reverser design, production and customer support,” Salmans stated.

Cessna’s Citation Longitude is the company’s entry into the super midsize business jet category, setting new standards in private business travel for cabin efficiency, technology, luxury and comfort.

The next-generation Snecma Silvercrest® engine have a takeoff thrust rating of 11,000 lbs. on the Citation Longitude, and includes state-of-the art technologies for high performance and reliability.
