Landing gear systems

The landing gear is an essential system that allows the aircraft to start from the gate, taxi to the runway, to take off and to land safely. Liebherr-Aerospace has the capabilities and the experience to design, manufacture and service landing gear systems. This includes the landing gear structure, the extension/ retraction and steering actuation, the position and warning system, the integration of wheels and brakes and the associated sensors and controls, including cockpit controls.

Landing gear systems by Liebherr are integrated into all kinds of platforms like commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, business jets, helicopters, transport aircraft and fighters.

Electromechanical actuators

Actuators are mechanisms that connect the cockpit controls to various moving parts of the aircraft, thus controlling its movements. Today they are hydraulic, but Liebherr-Aerospace is working on the next generation: electro-mechanical actuators. Play video
