Brakes

Advanced braking systems include hydraulic and electrically actuated brakes, using steel or carbon friction material.

Innovative technology includes the proprietary DURACARB® carbon friction material. DURACARB provides operators with an average 35 percent longer brake life over competing carbon materials, exceptional braking performance, and significant weight savings over high capacity steel brakes.

Advanced technologies and precision engineering are used to develop the brakes to excel in the competitive airline environment.  These factors combine to provide lower total cost of operation, ease of maintainability, and reliability to our customers.
