The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.’s Aviation business recently introduced its Flight Eagle LT (Light Turbine) tire for entry level, Very Light and Light Jets.The Flight Eagle LT is an extension of Goodyear’s popular Flight Eagle line of aviation tires, a top choice for business jets.
The Flight Eagle LT tire includes a six-ply tire casing, high-speed tread compound, and a reinforced bead area that all combine to help provide performance in higher speed applications, according to company officials, who note the two-groove tread design helps to maximize the number of landings and improve performance in wet conditions.
The tire has the same features found in the Flight Eagle line, including sidewalls with antioxidants to help resist ozone, officials add.
Embraer has approved the Flight Eagle LT as an original equipment fitment on its entry level jet, the Phenom 100 aircraft, which is currently available, and its Light Jet Phenom 300 aircraft, scheduled for delivery this year.
