Goodrich is a key supplier to the commercial/civil markets winning many new awards on the latest programs which continue to add balanced growth to our business portfolio. Goodrich has been a civil aviation supplier since 1909, debuting with special, light weight aeroplane tires for Glenn Curtiss at the Paris Air Races.
At Goodrich our focus is to provide systems, products and services that make aircraft more efficient to operate and easier to maintain. Take our electro-hydraulic actuation on the Airbus A380 or our new electric braking system on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Or consider our certified LED strobe and navigation lighting on the A380. They boast improved product life at reduced power consumption.
Innovations continue in this market with our Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) technology and its improved safety features. And our Smart Probe™ Air Data System on the Airbus A380 helps lower manufacturing and operator maintenance costs.
