Messier-Bugatti-Dowty to supply wheels and electric brakes on Vietnam Airlines' Boeing 787 fleet
Messier-Bugatti-Dowty's electric brake meets airline and aircraft manufacturer requirements in terms of braking safety, effectiveness and comfort, while also providing a cost-effective solution, as reflected in the choice by Vietnam's flag carrier.
Messier-Bugatti-Dowty's electric brakes are based on the Sepcarb® III OR (oxidation resistant) carbon material, offering recognized endurance. They were designed to reduce weight, while also maintaining excellent thermal qualities. Messier-Bugatti-Dowty's electric brakes are the lightest on the market, and also ensure higher dispatch reliability, simplified maintenance and longer service life.
Vincent Mascré, CEO of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, said: "I would like to thank Vietnam Airlines for placing their trust in us. Our electric brake has largely proven its reliability on Boeing 787 fleets already in service, making it the most strategic choice for all operators."
Messier-Bugatti-Dowty also provides the main and nose landing gear for all Boeing 787s.
