This product range also extends to helicopters and tiltrotors, where Messier-Dowty supports both the V22 and the Eurocopter Tiger programs. The company is also responsible for the integrated landing gear system of Airbus Military’s A400M transporter aircraft.

In today’s dynamic aerospace environment, the challenges of the market require a holistic view of the product life cycle. At Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, our focus is to provide landing gear systems which are not only reliable and robust, but increasingly weight efficient and environmentally responsible, thus providing overall value across the full life of an aircraft program.
