Goodrich to provide CSeries' high-lift system

  • 01-May-2009 04:23 EDT
Bombardier selected Goodrich to design and produce the high-lift actuation system for its new CSeries family of commercial aircraft. The selection is expected to generate more than $750 million in original equipment and aftermarket revenue over 20 years. Work will be performed by Goodrich’s Actuation Systems team in Wolverhampton, U.K. Goodrich will provide a fully integrated high-lift flap and slat system for the aircraft including actuators, power drive units, wing tip brakes, electronic control units, cockpit levers, transmission shafts, and sensors. In addition, Goodrich will provide complete system integration optimized for the aircraft. The Goodrich team will also provide the thrust reverser actuation system for the Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1000G engine that will power the CSeries.
