Safran Landing Systems ensures the landing gear design, qualification, manufacture and support for the Boeing V-22.
Selected in 1985, Safran Landing Systems is responsible for the design, qualification testing and production of the V-22 main landing gear. In 2006, our role on the program was expanded with Safran Landing Systems' selection to supply a new nose landing gear.
Conjointly manufactured by Boeing and Bell Helicopter, the V-22 is the world's first serial production tiltrotor which combines the speed, range and fuel efficiency normally associated with turboprop aircraft with the vertical take-off/landing and hover capabilities of helicopters. The V-22 represents a major technological breakthrough in aviation that meets long standing military needs.
