Landing Gears

AEM offers cost-effective overhaul of landing gears and associated components.  We are also able to provide a full and comprehensive in-house machining and plating service in support of our landing gear activity.  This enables us to maintain complete control of cost, quality and turnaround times.

Spares and Loan Assets

AEM offers comprehensive exchange and spares options to ensure the minimum disruption to business. In order for our customers to maximise their flying hours, AEM has made significant investment in landing gear inventory. Assets are available for short or extended loan during the overhaul cycle at competitive rates. This adds further value and flexibility to the service offering. Get in touch today to find out more.

The Process

When a landing gear initially arrived in our warehouse, every component is taken apart to be inspected immediately for any obvious and superficial damage before being ready for cleaning. Once cleansed, we use precision measuring to inspect the dimensions and the tolerances can be as small as .0001 inch. As all components then go through non-destructive testing, we quickly see anything flagging as damaged, cracked or defective and it is then separated for further inspection or repair. Before we reassemble everything, all protective cadmium plating, black oxide coatings, primer and paint are renewed to ensure complete protection against corrosion. 


Non-Destructive Testing Equipment

AEM is proud to boast non-destructive testing (NDT) capabilities. The NDT workshop provides fluorescent dye penetrant and magnetic particle techniques. Both half wave and full wave inspection processes are available to highlight surface and sub-surface defects.

60 Years of Industry Experience

AEM has many years of experience in working with landing gears. Our technicians work closely with OEMs as a recognised approved repair centre on the introduction of repair schemes and concessions. This reduces the need for replacement and additional cost.
