Welcome to the RAeS Flight Test Group
The Flight Test Group (formerly the Test Pilots Group) examines the human and engineering aspects of test flying aircraft, both military and civil, fixed and rotary wing. With the experience of individual pilots and teams working on development projects, the Group provides a forum for all engaged in this area of aviation. The Group holds a number of Conferences and Lectures each year.

The Landing Gear System is one of the most important systems on any aeroplane. With the consequences of failure being, at the least, very expensive, a landing gear system must be extremely reliable and safe, but also incur minimum cost to the operator, which demands light weight and minimal maintenance.
This lecture will cover design processes involved in defining new Landing Gear, with the A380 development as an example.
Held at the Symposium room Airbus SAS/HQ, 3km from Toulouse Airport.
