British Airways Selects Landing Gear Control Unit from Crane Aerospace
British Airways has chosen Crane’s enhanced landing gear control interface unit (LGCIU), which has been standard fit on Airbus A320 family aircraft since October 2010, for its A320 fleet upgrade. The LGCIU provides system health status to the central fault display system, sensing the position of the landing gear and landing gear doors, flap disconnect status and cargo door position.
The LGCIU from Crane (Hall 4 Stand F14) has enhanced reliability over the legacy device. “The new unit is also lower weight and provides an improvement in the system fault isolation capability to increase dispatch reliability for British Airways,” said Tim King, director of aftermarket sales for Crane Aerospace & Electronics.
