Safran to Develop Advanced Landing Gear System for Bell’s Tiltrotor, the US Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft

Safran Landing Systems, a global leader in landing gear systems, has been selected to collaborate on Bell’s tiltrotor aircraft program, a crucial component of the US Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) initiative.


Under the terms of the contract, Safran Landing Systems will lead the design and development of a fully integrated landing system. This collaborative effort will establish a robust foundation to meet all future operational requirements of the FLRAA.


The US Army’s choice of Bell for the FLRAA program was announced in late 2022.


François Bastin, CEO of Safran Landing Systems, expressed his pride in the company’s involvement, stating, “We are very proud to officially announce today our participation in the program as members of the Team. Safran is honored to be part of this project to develop a system based on the requirements of the US Army. Safran Landing Systems has been a committed partner to this program since 2018 and we greatly appreciate Bell’s trust in our ability to develop an innovative landing gear system that will enable the Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft to perform critical missions.”


Drawing on over 80 years of industry expertise and an unwavering commitment to innovation, Safran Landing Systems possesses the full spectrum of capabilities required to support the increasing complexity and technological demands of military aircraft.
