Electrical Landing Gear Actuation Systems

Having designed and manufactured electric motion control products for the Aerospace & Defense industry for almost 100 years, AMETEK Airtechnology Group is very familiar with the electric motor. In recent years AMETEK has been considering "more electric" alternatives to traditional aircraft systems such as hydraulics and has recently been successful in developing and certifying a helicopter Electric Landing Gear System. The system benefits include low weight, low maintenance, reduced turnaround times and due to its "plug & play" capability, the system can be offered as a post delivery option.  The knowledge and experience gained in developing this flight critical system can equally be applied to fixed wing landing gear and primary flight control.
