The PC-24 is the first twin-engine business aircraft, as well as the first jet, offered by Pilatus.
Parker Aircraft Wheel & Brake’s bill of material on the PC-24 includes internal caliper brakes (four per aircraft), 10-inch main wheels (four per aircraft), wheel fairings (two per aircraft), and five-inch nose wheels (one per aircraft).
The wheels and brakes for the PC-24 are designed to provide maximum performance and longevity along with reduced maintenance time, ease of lining replacement, and competitive operating costs, according to company officials.
The first rollout of the PC-24 aircraft in Stans, Switzerland, is occurring this week, the same time of the AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 show. Parker Hannifin’s Aircraft Wheel & Brake Division has the PC-24 main wheel and brake on display at its booth in Building C, Exhibit 3087, during the show.
Parker Aerospace also provides wheels and brakes for the Pilatus PC-12 and PC-21 aircraft.
