2014/09/11 - UTC Aerospace Systems-Landing Gear Plant Tour - Thursday, 11 September 2014

posted Feb 12, 2015, 12:55 PM by Anton Dubov
There is a saying in the aircraft industry, “takeoffs are optional, landings are mandatory”. This holds so very true when one realizes that the weight of some aircrafts these days, for example the Boeing 747, is close to 1 million pounds! Landing gears are structural components designed to hold the weight of the aircraft and absorb its shock load during landing.

ASME Ontario Section is proud to present an exciting plant tour to Goodrich Oakville. Goodrich Oakville is a division of UTC Aerospace Systems-Landing Gear, a leading provider of integrated landing gear systems and flight controls for commercial and military applications.
