Goodrich selected to provide flight control actuation system for Irkut MC-21 commercial aircraft

Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has been selected by Russia's Irkut and Aviapribor to provide the flight control actuation system for the new Irkut MC-21 family of single-aisle commercial aircraft.

The actuation system will become part of Aviapribor's complete integrated flight control system for the MC-21. Goodrich will contract with Aviapribor to design, develop and produce primary and secondary flight control actuation systems for all variants of the MC-21. In addition, Goodrich will provide complete actuation system integration optimized for the aircraft. This new fully optimized design builds on millions of flight hours experience gained across a wide range of aircraft platforms, providing built-in maturity for MC-21 operators.

"The new MC-21 aircraft will benefit from lower weight, enhanced reliability and ease of maintenance through the latest Goodrich fly-by-wire flight control technology," said Jack Carmola, Segment President, Actuation and Landing Systems at Goodrich. "We look forward to developing a long and successful relationship with Aviapribor and Irkut."

The MC-21 is being developed by Irkut Corporation as a family of short-to-medium range airliners, carrying between 150 and 210 passengers. Initial entry into service is planned for 2016.
