Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) of Borgomanero, Italy, is continuing its recent growth by signing multiple contracts in advance of NBAA, 2012. Exhibiting at the convention in booth 4538, MAG will display a range of its landing gears, including those for the Eclipse E550 very light jet which launched initial production in June of this year and AgustaWestland products such as the AW109 and AW139M helicopters.
In the rotorcraft market, MAG is also providing landing gears to Bell Helicopter Textron for both the Bell 525 “Relentless” and 429 programs.
In June this year, Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) rolled out Turkey’s new primary and basic trainer aircraft, Hürkuş on a MAG developed landing gear system. MAG is responsible for engineering, system integration and production of a complete ‘bolt-on’ system consisting of high shock absorbing nose and main gears, hydraulic steering system, hydraulic actuation, landing gear control valve, hydraulic braking system, wheels, brakes, tires and landing gear cockpit controls for the tandem configured aircraft.
Most recently, MAG was awarded a contract to develop its landing gear system on a light aerial UAV for an Asian government, thereby extending its expertise into the most dynamic growth sector of the world aerospace market.
MAG’s co-general manager, Armando Sassoli, said, “This year has seen the team at MAG push forward and close some significant, international contracts which will help drive our continued growth in the near and distant future.
“We’re looking forward to exhibiting at NBAA 2012, so that we can demonstrate exactly what makes MAG’s products the superior choice for customers in the helicopter, business aviation and general aviation markets.”
