British Airways selects Messier-Bugatti-Dowty wheels and brakes for its Boeing 787 fleet

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, (Safran group), has recently won a major contract to supply wheels and carbon brakes for British Airways’ fleet of Boeing 787 aircraft, to be delivered starting in 2013. The contract covers 24 aeroplanes.

Garry Copeland, British Airways’ Director of Engineering, said: “We are pleased to have reached agreement with Messier-Bugatti-Dowty. The company already provides brakes for both our Airbus A320 and Boeing 777 aircraft and we look forward to working with them on the Boeing 787 when the aircraft join our fleet.”

Alain Sauret, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty added: "This latest success reinforces our position as the world leader in carbon brakes for commercial aeroplanes. The introduction of electric brakes is a major innovation for the 787 program, bringing operational benefits to airlines whilst preserving the endurance qualities of our market-proven Sepcarb® III OR carbon."

787 electric brakes by Messier-Bugatti-Dowty have been designed to offer reduced weight whilst maintaining excellent thermal capacity, better in-service reliability, simplified maintenance and longer brake life.

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty also supplies the nose and main landing gears for the Boeing 787 program.
