E-Props works daily to propose solutions for a lighter and more efficient aviation.
In this fight against useless masses, here are the E-Props Composite Landing Gears
E-Props landing gear legs in composite materials: ultra-light, robust, excellent damping
An E-Props composite landing gear leg weighs 1 kg
, compared to 3.7 kg for a standard metal leg.
This landing gear allows to save 5,4 kg
on the aircraft.
The E-PROPS composite landing gear legs offer :
✗ 4 times more
✗ 6 times more
energy max. absorbed
compared to the existing metallic landing gear legs.
E-Props Composite Landing Gears => weight saving, better mechanical resistance, better damping
The tests we have conducted on these new landing gears are very promising.
At present, we are cramped in our 2,200 m² factory and it is not possible to industrialize these new landing gears in our current premises, because the molds take up a lot of space.
In September 2021, we started the construction of a new 4,000 m² factory. It should be operational next spring (2022).
Only then will we be able to produce these ultra-light and very strong landing gears.
