Safran Landing Systems announces the completion of the 500 landing gear set (nose and main landing gear) for Boeing 787 Dreamliner in its Canadian facility located in Ajax, Ontario.

Since being awarded with the contract in 2006, Safran Landing Systems has been responsible for the design, development, qualification, testing, manufacture and support of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner main and nose landing gear.

“This milestone is a testament to our commitment to technology and research,” said Deane Weatherby, VP, North American Programs at Safran Landing Systems. “Our Boeing 787 landing gear features a number of innovations in material technology aimed at reducing landing gear weight, corrosion and providing higher resistance to fatigue.”

Production activities for the 787 program are shared across Safran Landing Systems facilities in Canada, USA, China, France, Mexico and the UK. Final integration takes place at the company’s Everett, Wash. and Ajax facilities as well as its sister company Safran Electrical and Power site in Charleston, S.C., where the system components are integrated with the landing gear structure prior to delivery to Boeing’s final assembly lines in Seattle and Charleston. The 500 landing gear set is scheduled to be shipped to Boeing’s final assembly line in Seattle.

“This is a significant landmark for Safran Landing Systems,” said Deane Weatherby. “Since the launch of this program, more than 113 million passengers have flown on the 787 Dreamliner equipped with our landing gear. We are pleased to be a part of the Boeing 787 family and we look forward to our continued partnership.”
