Propulsion System Integration


Our propulsion system integration service covers a range of aspects such as design of engine mounting structure and layout of EBU. Please see below for a full list of services available.

Propulsion system integration and certification

  • Integration and management of airframe, engine (propeller), and nacelle manufacturers
  • Requirements management from propulsion level down to detailed component levels
  • Certification planning and management of compliance checklist

Powerplant Design

  • Design of engine mounting structure (fwd, aft, thrust links)
  • Layout of EBU (fuel, hydraulics, air, electrics, fire protection, drains etc.)
  • Fire zoning and firewalls arrangement
  • Installation of nacelle (inlet, fan, TR and exhaust cowlings)
  • Management of changes and configuration control

Powerplant Systems Definition

  • Definition and integration of powerplant-airframe systems interfaces
