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.
70th Anniversary of the Empire Test Pilots’ School
