Bombardier selects Goodrich next generation SmartProbe(TM) air data system for Learjet 85 aircraft

Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has been selected by Bombardier to provide its next generation SmartProbe™ air data system for the Learjet 85 midsize business jet. The selection marks the first application of Goodrich's SmartProbe air data system on a Learjet aircraft. Work will be performed by Goodrich's Sensors and Integrated Systems team in Burnsville, Minn.

The next generation SmartProbe system provides all critical air data parameters - including stall protection - to the aircraft's flight control, pilot display and other systems. SmartProbe air data sensing technology integrates multi-function sensing probes, pressure sensors and air data computer processing. Elimination of pneumatic lines reduces system cost, weight and complexity. Full integration improves system reliability, maintainability and performance. The flexibility and versatility of the next generation SmartProbe system makes it suitable for traditional to fully fly-by-wire flight control applications.

"Selection of our SmartProbe system, a first at Learjet, broadens our business opportunities with Bombardier and strengthens our market leadership in air data systems for next generation aircraft," said Jan Mathiesen, vice president, Goodrich Sensors and Integrated Systems. "The system brings outstanding value and performance to the Learjet 85 as this exciting new platform joins a long list of successful aircraft using SmartProbe technology."

The new Learjet 85 aircraft will be the first Bombardier business jet to feature an all-composite structure, allowing Learjet designers to maximize cabin comfort while minimizing drag and improving performance. Designed to provide a larger, more comfortable cabin than any existing midsize aircraft, the Learjet 85 jet will offer eight passengers a stand-up cabin built to ensure superior productivity and comfort. Entry into service is on schedule for 2013.
