The Bell V-280 Valor next-generation tiltrotor aircraft being developed for the U.S. Army will be fitted with Safran-made landing gear systems under an agreement reached by the companies.

Bell’s V-280 Valor is proposed for the U.S. Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) Program.

Based on the agreement, Safran Landing Systems will develop and manufacture a fully integrated Landing Gear System consisting of the Main Landing Gear, Tail Landing Gear, Wheels and Brakes, Extension/Retraction System, Steering System, Brake Control System and Indication sensors.

The development, test and manufacturing activities will be conducted in four Safran Landing Systems sites in North America and Europe. The primary management of this program will be based in the company’s facility in Ajax, Ontario, Canada.
