Turkish aerospace company signs new Airbus contract
In a statement, the TAI said the deal covers the design, build and supply of the “Pratt and Whitney (PW) Nacelle Fan Cowl” for the bestselling A320 Neo Aircraft.
The company did not give out financial details of the deal but said it would design and manufacture the A320Neo PW Nacelle Fan Cowls as the sole source throughout the program’s lifetime.
Fan cowls protect the engine of a jet from external impacts, reduce air resistance on the engine and increase the efficiency of the aircraft’s aerodynamics, according to the statement.
Turkish Aerospace Industries has been the sole supplier of Section 18 fuselage panels for the A320 since 2014.
