APPH announces contract to supply landing gear for U.S. military aircraft

APPH, the UK leading supplier of landing gear systems, part of BBA Aviation, is pleased to announce it will be awarded an initial contract to supply the landing gear for 78 aircraft to the U.S. military with the anticipated total requirement for over 200 aircraft.

APPH has designed, manufactured and certified the main landing gear for the U.S. Joint Cargo Aircraft (JCA) contract winner C27J Tactical Transporter Aircraft. "The C-27J will provide total sales revenue in excess of $60 million for original equipment and logistical support over the next ten years," says David Haslam, Divisional Managing Director, APPH.

The C-27J designed, developed and manufactured by Alenia Aeronautica, has been selected by the U.S. Army and Air Force as the new tactical transport aircraft for the JCA programme.

The JCA is a joint programme run by the U.S. Army and Air Force for a transport aircraft. As a high-performance, multi-purpose aircraft with capabilities of independent operation, effectiveness and operating efficiency, the C-27J, equipped with Rolls Royce AE2100 engines, is the ideal solution to this requirement.

APPH has worked in collaboration with Magnaghi SpA Italy, to develop and integrate the total landing gear system on the C-27J.

APPH is part of BBA Aviation PLC, and provides specialist services including design, manufacture, assembly and support of landing gear, hydraulic and filtration systems, and other component repair and overhaul services for virtually all segments within the aviation industry.
