  • 13-Jul-2010 04:20 EDT

Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd. (COMAC) selected Honeywell to provide the wheels and brakes, brake control system, and tires for the new C919 airliner. Honeywell’s carbon brake solution will reduce aircraft weight, translating into decreased operating costs from a lower fuel burn and a longer brake life. Honeywell is collaborating on the COMAC C919 pedal-to-ground solution with Hunan Boyun New Materials Co., Ltd. and Changsha Xinhang Wheel & Brake Co., Ltd. A joint venture will be formed to provide the wheels and brakes system for the new C919 airliner.
