Air Transport Services Group (ATSG), one of the largest lessors of freighter aircraft and a leading provider of air cargo transportation services based in Wilmington, Ohio, has selected Safran Landing Systems for the retrofit of more than 30 Boeing 767 freighters operated by the company’s subsidiary airlines. This transition to Safran’s wheels and carbon brakes allows ATSG to operate with a common wheel and brake configuration across its operating fleet of freighter aircraft with carbon brakes.

As part of this long-term agreement, Safran Landing Systems will supply ATSG with the on-wing shipsets, the initial provisioning spares, the piece parts and carbon heat sink exchanges and will perform the maintenance, repair and overhaul of its carbon brakes.

Safran Landing Systems’ 767 equipment will be manufactured in its state-of-the-art wheels and brakes production factory in Walton, (Kentucky, USA), while the brake MRO services will be carried out by Safran Landing Systems Wheels & Brakes Repair & Services, through its network of five repair shops (Milwaukee (Wisconsin), Miami (Florida), Bethlehem (Pennsylvania), Las Vegas (Nevada) and Grand Prairie (Texas).
