Goodrich provides systems, products and services for helicopters with commercial, industrial and military applications. Goodrich’s helicopter capabilities are amongst the most innovative in our portfolio.
Goodrich’s advanced systems for vehicle health management, engine and flight controls, anti-collision lighting, and dual rescue hoist installations are taking the latest helicopter programs to new heights. Expanded MRO networks provide reduced turnaround times and streamlined logistics. Our crew escape technologies for tactical helicopters are setting new standards for flight crew safety.
Take the NH Industries NH90 helicopter and the fact that it is flying in full fly-by-wire mode with Goodrich main rotor actuators onboard. The NH90 was the first industrial rotorcraft to be equipped with a fly-by-wire flight control system. Or take our reliable rescue hoist installations that have been part of courageous rescue efforts across the world.
Continued balanced growth in this marketing is projected through Goodrich involvement in other programs such as those involving next generation DC power systems and small engine controls. And we remain focused on securing future awards on major new programs.
