Airbus selected Goodrich Corp. to supply wheels and carbon brakes for all variants of the A350 XWB family of aircraft. The selection is expected to generate more than $3 billion in revenue over the life of the program. The equipment will be provided by Goodrich's Aircraft Wheels and Brakes team in Troy, OH. The brakes will utilize Goodrich's Duracarb carbon heat sink material, which has demonstrated 35% greater brake life than competing carbon braking materials, according to the company. Goodrich is the first supplier selected to provide wheels and brakes for the A350 XWB.
