Thrust Reversers for the TFE-731 Turbofan 750506

Improved design features have made the pivoted-target thrust reverser concept most attractive for modern small turbofans with coaxial flow exhaust systems. These aerodynamic, mechanical and structural design improvements provide 40% or more reverse thrust effectiveness in a simple, light weight, low cost unit that has clean aerodynamic lines and minimum effect on engine performance.
The pivoted-target thrust reverser system, under development at Grumman for the AiResearch TFE-731-2 and -3 engines, is described. Applications include the IAI Westwind 1124, the Gates Learjet 35/36 and the Dassault Falcon 10 aircraft.
