BFGoodrich offers new brakes for Beech King Air Series.

SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 5, 1996--BFGoodrich Aerospace has developed new high performance brakes for Raytheon Aircraft's Beech King Air 90, 99 and 100, 200 and 300/350 Series aircraft to improve pilot control for smoother braking and increase design landing energy capabilities for additional safety.

BFGoodrich designed these brakes to achieve higher performance levels. Through engineering design and manufacturing process refinements, the heat stack components are processed using the latest laser technology that results in closer tolerances and greater product durability. By using the latest manufacturing technology, BFGoodrich is able to provide the new Beech King Air Brake Package at a lower price, which in return provides operators with a reduced operating cost.

Supplying Beech King Airs for more than 30 years, BFGoodrich's new brakes are standard on all new Beech King Airs, while conversion kits will be available to upgrade brakes for existing aircraft. The brakes are OEM approved and supported through Raytheon Aircraft and BFGoodrich's worldwide distribution network, which provides AOG support, technical services and parts availability.

For more than 45 years, BFGoodrich Aircraft Wheel and Brake Operation has been a worldwide leader in the design, development and manufacture of commercial, military, regional and business aircraft wheels and brakes, creating braking systems for more than 200 types of aircraft. Headquartered in Troy, Ohio, the regional, business and military wheel and brake division is a unit of BFGoodrich Aerospace, Akron, Ohio.

For more information, visit BFGoodrich Aerospace at Asian Aerospace '96 in Hall A, booth/stand 1121, at the Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore on Feb. 6-11, 1996.
