UTC Aerospace Systems selected by Thai Airways for wheels and carbon brakes
UTC Aerospace Systems has been selected by Thai Airways International to supply the wheels and carbon brakes for its new fleet of 14 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. UTC Aerospace Systems will provide the equipment through its Wheels & Brakes business in Troy, Ohio. The first aircraft was delivered in August 2012. The 777-300ER carbon brakes, delivered under the Goodrich brand, use proprietary DURACARB carbon heat sink material. The DURACARB carbon provides exceptional brake performance and a 35% brake life advantage over competitive products, producing significant cost savings for operators.
