Goodrich to provide integrated landing gear system for Cessna Citation Columbus business jet

Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) is providing an advanced fully integrated landing gear system for the Cessna Model 850 Citation Columbus large cabin intercontinental business jet. The weight-efficient system includes main and nose landing gear, wheels and carbon brakes, and electronic control and steering systems. The selection of Goodrich represents an important strategic partnership and new approach for Cessna landing systems. While Goodrich has had a long history with Cessna as a wheel and brake supplier, this is the first landing gear system they have supplied to Cessna.

Goodrich's Landing Gear team will provide overall system integration, fully dressed main and nose landing gear assemblies, actuation, control and steering systems and final assembly from its plants in Oakville, Ontario Canada and Krosno, Poland. Goodrich's Aircraft Wheels and Brakes team in Troy, Ohio will supply the wheels, tires, carbon brakes, brake control and other related braking components. Hardware deliveries to support rig testing are expected by mid 2009.

Jack Carmola, Segment President for Actuation and Landing Systems at Goodrich, said, "Goodrich has a long history of supplying wheels and brakes to Cessna and is proud to continue and expand upon this relationship by providing an advanced integrated landing gear system on the new Cessna Citation Columbus."

Joe Hepburn, Citation Columbus program manager at Cessna, said, "The addition of Goodrich to the Columbus team represents a long term relationship with a company and people who have proven their ability to meet Cessna's high standard of quality."

Cessna currently has 71 Citation Columbus aircraft on order for customers worldwide. The aircraft is expected to achieve FAA certification by the end of 2013, with deliveries beginning in 2014.

Goodrich currently provides wheels and brakes to a number of Cessnas, including nine models in the Citation family.
