Airbus selects Goodrich for A350-1000 main landing gear

Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has been selected by Airbus to provide the main landing gear for the -1000 variant of the A350 XWB aircraft. The contract is expected to generate more than $2 billion in original equipment and aftermarket revenue for Goodrich over the life of the program.

This selection covers the design, test, manufacture and in-service support of the main landing gear. The work represents a global effort involving Goodrich locations in Canada, the United States, Poland, India and France, as well as collaboration with Goodrich's extensive global supply chain.

The main landing gear design will incorporate the latest technologies, including the use of light weight materials, noise reduction features and more environmentally friendly material processes, which will contribute to a more efficient and "greener" aircraft.

"This selection represents a continuation of Goodrich's growing relationship with Airbus as a key landing gear supplier," said Jack Carmola, President of Goodrich's Actuation and Landing Systems segment. "This program will allow us to leverage our experience as the landing gear supplier on the A380 program and continue with this success onto the A350-1000."

In addition to the main landing gear, Goodrich is providing all three members of the A350 XWB Family's nacelle and thrust reverser system, wheels and carbon brakes, air data system and ice detection system, external video system and cabin attendant seats.

The A350-1000 is the largest of the three variants of the A350 XWB twinjet. It is designed to carry up to 350 passengers and has a range of up to 8,000 nautical miles.
