Messier-Dowty and LAMC join forces to propose the integrated landing gear system for the Chinese single aisle C919 aircraft

Pascal Sénéchal, Chairman & CEO, Messier-Dowty, representing also Messier-Bugatti (both SAFRAN Group companies), and XU Jun, President of LAMC, representing also Xian Aviation Brake Technology and First Aircraft Institute, signed on June 5th a LOI (Letter Of Intent) preparing a cooperation between these companies for the Chinese single aisle COMAC C919 program.

The signature took place in Shanghai, in the presence of Mr. CHEN Fusheng, Vice General Manager of AVIC Aircraft.

This agreement covers the complete landing gear system for the future aircraft, which entails the gear structure, wheels and brakes, braking and landing systems.

The parties have thus committed to an exclusive partnership and joint response to COMAC's upcoming request for proposal.

SAFRAN, one of the world's leading aerospace, defense and security equipment suppliers, is currently in competition to supply a large range of equipment on the C919 program, which includes, among others, the integrated landing gear system. Moreover, SAFRAN is present in China through several industrial units and joint ventures, including its Snecma and Messier-Dowty manufacturing facilities in Suzhou.
