UK’s Leading, Independent Landing Gear Specialists
We understand the challenges facing modern landing gear development and provide independent and impartial services on the design and integration of landing gear for a wide range of fixed and rotary wing platforms, in civil and military applications.
We have extensive knowledge of all the latest EASA, FAA and military requirements and standards which are applied in conjunction with a range of proven in-house analysis and modelling tools.
Our capabilities encompass definition of the landing gear architecture, including sizing, kinematic studies, shimmy analysis and extend to the wider landing gear systems such as extension and retraction, steering, braking, door systems and monitoring system functionality; covering all aspects of ATA 32 subsystems.
Our specialist landing gear team works with aircraft manufacturers, system providers and aircraft operators on a global basis and also provides expert witnesses support to the UK AAIB for aircraft incident investigations and litigation.
Regional Aircraft Design Support
To achieve delivery of the company’s first regional jet aircraft programme, Mitsubishi Aerospace Corporation (MitAC) turned to Stirling for our specialist support. The range of skills required to service the aircraft design were not available within the company or even within the region, so external expertise was required to progress the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ), latterly known as the Mitsubishi Spacejet.
Landing Gear Design for Amphibious Aircraft
Building on our success as recognised landing gear design consultants, we were approached by a Chinese client that was developing an amphibious firefighting/search & rescue aircraft. The client had issues with the system performance and integration of their complex landing gear system, and we were asked to address this.
