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.
