has been designing and producing landing gear systems for many years,
supplying airframe manufacturers worldwide.
The company supplies landing gears
for military aircraft including helicopters, fighters and trainers,
civil airliners and business jets. APPH’s Engineering Division
provides the design expertise to make these gears a reality and some
typical examples are…
SAAB Gripen – an advanced fighter flown by
the Swedish Air Force, where APPH designed and manufactured the complete
Nose and Main Landing Gear Systems.
Hawk Trainer (BAe Systems) flown by the Red Arrows
Display Team, has been the RAF’s leading jet trainer aircraft
for many years. APPH designed the Hawk landing gears and continues
to produce them for export customers, while supporting existing customers.
EH101 Merlin a multi-role helicopter designed for
military, maritime and civil roles can carry 5 tons of cargo, 27 troops
or can be used for Search and Rescue. APPH designed and manufactures
the main and nose landing gears for this aircraft.
C27J Spartan manufactured by Alenia Aeronautica,
is a twin-engined transport aircraft where APPH designed and currently
manufactures the complete main landing gear system – a complex
gear design that retracts into a very compact space.
Many other APPH landing gear designs have been incorporated into other
civil aircraft, where examples include the SAAB 340, SAAB 2000, Jetstream
31, 32 and 41. APPH also manufactured the nose and centre gears for
the MD11 airliner.
