Liebherr-Aerospace on board the Bombardier CSeries aircraft
Liebherr-Aerospace supplies two major systems, the complete landing gear system and the integrated air management system, for Bombardier’s CSeries aircraft, which successfully made its historic, maiden flight on September 16, 2013. These systems feature the latest technologies for the next generation of single-aisle aircraft, thus offering improved reliability and operational performance. Liebherr took advantage of its vast experience in landing gears and air management systems for commercial aircraft to optimize the operating costs and the reliability of its systems for the CSeries aircraft. The systems are designed, developed and manufactured by Liebherr-Aerospace’s German- and French-based OEM facilities: Lieberr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Lindenberg (Germany), is responsible for the CSeries landing gear, whereas Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Toulouse (France), is in charge of the air management system.
