Lockwood Aviation and Beringer Wheels & Brakes have inked an agreement for Lockwood Aviation in Sebring, Florida, to become the first US service center for Beringer Wheels & Brakes in Tallard, France.
Beringer officials said they chose Lockwood for its reputation for excellent customer service and its expertise in light aviation. Both routine service and full Beringer conversions are supported at the Sebring facility.
Phil Lockwood, president of Lockwood Aviation, says, “We are pleased to be working with Beringer Wheels & Brakes. We have adopted their system on our Air Cam, and are extremely pleased with the results.
Beringer Wheels & Brakes offer CNC-machined billet construction, long-lasting brake pads, and tubeless tires. Also included in all Beringer full conversions is the ALIR (Anti Lock Inline Regulator) system, which allows differential steering and full braking without skidding, even if uneven pedal pressure is inadvertently applied, company officials said.
Beringer systems are available for a wide range of aircraft from light GA aircraft up to the Pilatus PC-6, and complete kits include everything for a bolt-on conversion: master cylinders and reservoirs, braided stainless/Teflon hoses and fittings, axles and nuts, brakes, wheels, and mounted, pressure-tested tires.
Spare parts for Beringer Wheels & Brakes are also available through Aircraft Spruce
