Goodrich will provide the main landing gear for the A350-1000. The company will use the experience it has gained from being the supplier of the landing gear for the A380 aircraft, shown here during cold weather testing. 


Airbus selected Goodrich Corp. to provide the main landing gear for the -1000 variant of the A350 XWB aircraft. This selection covers the design, test, manufacture, and in-service support of the main landing gear. The work represents a global effort involving Goodrich locations in the U.S., Canada, Poland, India, and France, as well as collaboration with Goodrich's global supply chain. The main landing gear design will incorporate lightweight materials, noise reduction features, and more environmentally friendly material processes. In addition to the main landing gear, Goodrich is providing all three members of the A350 XWB family's nacelle and thrust reverser system, wheels and carbon brakes, air data system and ice detection system, external video system, and cabin attendant seats.
