Paris Air Show: spotlight on the A350-900 main landing gear
The Paris Air Show opened its doors this morning! Safran Landing Systems is exhibiting is flagship products at the Air Show, with particular focus on the Airbus A350-900 main landing gear!
The Airbus A350-900 4-wheel main landing gear is of a completely new design featuring innovative technologies including the increased use of corrosion-resistant steels and titanium to create a lighter and more reliable product. The advantages of the new landing gear are better distribution of load, reduced maintenance costs due to a more robust design and materials used, as well as more environmentally friendly surface treatments.
The model exhibited on the Safran stand, in static deployed position, is not the usual type of mock-up exhibited at a show but is an actual landing gear that has been tested by Airbus.
