Héroux-Devtek has concluded its previously announced agreement to supply the main landing gears for Boeing’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler and has extended the scope of the agreement to include the manufacturing of the nose and main landing gears for Boeing’s Advanced F-15 program. The extended scope will also include the supply of spare parts and aftermarket services for both defense aircraft programs and covers a period of performance of five years.

The original supply agreement, announced during the Farnborough Airshow on July 17, 2018, provided for the manufacture and assembly of main landing gears and side braces for Boeing’s F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler, with first deliveries in the third quarter of 2020. This extended “Indefinite Delivery / Indefinite Quantity” scope now also includes the delivery of spare parts and aftermarket services for these landing gears.

Additionally, the agreement has been extended to include the manufacture and assembly of the nose and main landing gears for Boeing’s F-15 fighter jets, including spare parts and aftermarket services. First deliveries are expected to occur towards the beginning of 2023.
