Embraer selects Liebherr-Aerospace for several major systems on the E-Jet G2

Embraer has selected Liebherr-Aerospace as the supplier of the advanced high lift system and the integrated air management system for the next generation of their highly successful E-Jet commercial aircraft.

“Embraer has chosen the best of the latest-generation solutions in high lift and air management. Liebherr's systems will provide higher reliability and lower operating costs for our airline customers. This new partnership strengthens the long-standing relationship between Embraer and Liebherr-Aerospace,” said Embraer.

“Selecting our flight control system and air management system, Embraer will provide crews and passengers with the most advanced systems certified in the history of aviation. Our technologies allow for increased flight control agility, optimized safety and comfort, and substantially reduce operating costs. Their robustness was proven under all operating conditions of the aircraft,” Francis Niss, President of Liebherr-Aerospace & Transportation SAS, said. “The E-Jet G2 program will benefit from Liebherr-Aerospace's decades-long experience in designing, manufacturing and servicing flight controls and air management systems for commercial aircraft”.

The high lift system will be developed and manufactured by German-based Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Lindenberg, Liebherr's center of excellence for flight control and actuation systems. It will feature a complete fly-by-wire control system with dual channel skew detection. The system includes integrated computers, highly reliable hydraulic and electro-mechanical actuators and power control units.

Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Toulouse (France), Liebherr's center of excellence for air management systems, will develop and manufacture the air management system featuring integrated control architecture with lightweight pneumatic and mechanical components. It includes the engine bleed air system, the air conditioning system and the cabin pressure control system.

Liebherr's technologies will allow for a further substantial reduction of the CO2 and noise emissions of the E-Jet family, thus contributing to make commercial aviation more respectful of the environment. Liebherr-Aerospace is proud to contribute its latest generation of flight control and air management technologies to the success of Embraer's commercial aircraft family.
