SINGAPORE , Feb. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Singapore Airshow -- It will be next to impossible to miss Goodrich Corporation's (NYSE: GR) exhibit at the 2010 Singapore Airshow; just look for the building with a giant nacelle sticking out of the front wall. A nacelle is the streamlined cover that houses an aircraft engine, and the one at the Goodrich exhibit will protrude from the pavilion in such a way that it may even provide shelter from any passing showers to visitors who stand outside underneath it. Inside the pavilion, visitors can look out of a floor-to-ceiling window at the features that make the nacelle so quiet, then get a terrific view of the airshow's static display area. The Goodrich pavilion at Singapore, CD-07, is located just outside the exhibit halls on the way to chalet row.
The nacelle featured is a full-scale mockup from the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, over 12 feet in diameter and nearly five feet deep. This innovative nacelle features a deep, drag-reducing lip skin to greatly improve fuel efficiency. In addition, a one-piece acoustic inner liner significantly reduces engine noise, both in the passenger cabin and airport neighborhoods. The nacelle's one-piece inlet cowl is the largest of any nacelle system currently in production.
