Beringer Wheels & Brakes has introduced its new 4-inch main wheel and brake for light aircraft. Cut from solid aluminum billet on precision CNC machinery, they carry Beringer’s signature bright red anodized finish.
The single-piston hydraulic caliper provides smooth, powerful braking on its floating disc, according to company officials. Maintenance is reduced through the incorporation of sealed ball bearings and maintenance intervals are further extended through Beringer’s sintered metallic pads, which generate more stopping power as they heat, when you can use it – as the airplane has less lift, and the end of the runway is nearer, company officials explain.
The new two-piece wheel saves weight through its CNC-machined construction and tubeless mounting, and accommodates several popular tire sizes (3.00-4; 4.00-4; 2.80/2.50-4; 10×3.50-4). Flange-mount aluminum axles are available to match various aircraft requirements.
