BAE SYSTEMS AND HISPANO-SUIZA CREATE FADEC INTERNATIONAL, A JOINT VENTURE TO PROVIDE COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT ENGINE CONTROLS

BAE SYSTEMS Controls and HISPANO-SUIZA, a Snecma company, have formed FADEC International, a limited-liability company that will focus the two companies' capabilities to design, produce, and support full-authority digital engine controls (FADECs) for large commercial aircraft engines.

"Since 1984, HISPANO-SUIZA and BAE SYSTEMS Controls have teamed up to serve airlines and aircraft maintenance and repair providers with a full range of capabilities,� said Dennis Slattery, FADEC International's newly appointed president. "This arrangement will benefit our customers and provide faster delivery of repair service and spares and uniform performance.�

After nearly two decades of joint development, manufacture, and support activity, "FADEC International offers a single point of access for our combined capability that will make it easier for customers to know and do business with us,� said Loïc Nicolas, HISPANO-SUIZA's director of business development. "Our airline customers, numbering more than 350 worldwide, and the dozens of organisations we support with maintenance, repair, and overhaul services will benefit from the considerable streamlining that will result from this venture�.

The two companies have produced FADECs for CFM56, CF6-80, and GE90 engines, logging more than 100 million flight hours on engines that power some 3,000 commercial aircraft.
