Bombardier selects Goodrich as High Lift System provider for CSeries aircraft

Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has been selected by Bombardier to design and produce the high lift actuation system for the new Bombardier CSeries family of commercial aircraft. The selection is expected to generate more than $750 million in original equipment and aftermarket revenue over 20 years. Work will be performed by Goodrich's Actuation Systems team in Wolverhampton, UK.

Goodrich will provide a fully integrated high lift flap and slat system for the aircraft including actuators, power drive units, wing tip brakes, electronic control units, cockpit levers, transmission shafts and sensors. This new fully optimized design builds on the millions of high lift flight hours experience gained across a wide range of aircraft platforms, providing built-in maturity for the CSeries airliners. In addition, Goodrich will provide complete system integration optimized for the aircraft.

The Goodrich team in Wolverhampton will also provide the thrust reverser actuation system, an integral part of the nacelle system, for the Pratt & Whitney PurePower™ PW1000G engine that will power the CSeries. Goodrich was selected to provide the nacelle system for the PW1000G in 2008.

Eric Schulz, president, Goodrich Actuation Systems, said, "In providing both the high lift and thrust reverser actuation systems to Bombardier, we are leveraging our experience on these products to provide a truly integrated and optimized solution for the new generation single-aisle CSeries aircraft."

The CSeries aircraft will emit 20* per cent less CO2 and 50* per cent less NOx, fly four* times quieter, and deliver dramatic energy savings – 20* per cent fuel burn advantage as well as 15* percent improved cash operating costs – versus current in-production aircraft of similar size. Launch customer Lufthansa is scheduled to receive up to 60 of the aircraft; entry into service is expected in 2013.
