Embraer Defense and Security has announced today, at an event during the 49th Paris Air Show, in France, the selection of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty to supply the wheels, brakes, landing gear extension and retraction system, and nose wheel steering manifold for the KC-390 military transport aircraft.

"The choice of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty will provide the necessary toughness to meet the demanding requirements of the KC-390 applications," said Eduardo Bonini Santos Pinto, Sr. Vice President Operations and COO, Embraer Defense and Security. "The experience of this company, together with the highly integrated development process with Embraer, will result in the best solution, in terms of operations and maintenance costs, thus contributing to making the KC-390 highly competitive."

The system consists of carbon brakes, electronic brake-by-wire units and the hydraulic components responsible for controlling the braking of the aircraft, including auto-brakes and anti-skid. The items supplied also include aluminum wheels for the main and auxiliary landing gears, the nose wheel steering manifold and the hydraulic components for extending and retracting the landing gears.

"We are delighted to start a new partnership with Embraer in this innovative and ambitious aircraft program, and to contribute systems and equipment that will lower the total life cycle cost and increase the dispatch reliability of the KC-390," said Messier-Bugatti-Dowty Chairman and CEO Alain Sauret.
