Parker Aerospace received a pair of contracts to provide components to Gulfstream Aerospace and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. Parker will supply the flight control actuation system for Gulfstream’s G650 business jet aircraft and the complete hydraulic system for the new Mitsubishi Regional Jet. The Parker Control Systems Division will design and manufacture the G650’s fly-by-wire flight control actuation system, including the primary aileron, rudder, elevator, and spoiler flight control actuation and control electronics. The contract will generate an estimated $390 million over the life of the program for Parker. The hydraulic system is being designed and manufactured by Parker’s Hydraulic Systems Division in Kalamazoo, MI.  The system is comprised of three independent hydraulic circuits, including engine-driven pumps, electric-driven ac motor pumps, the power transfer unit, reservoirs, filters, accumulators, heat exchangers, and various valves, sensors, and ground connection equipment. The contract is estimated to generate more than $200 million for Parker over the life of the program.
