Airbus has received the initial main landing gear set for its A350 XWB, which is to be installed on the next-generation jetliner’s system test rig – along with the first nose landing gear received last month – in Filton, UK. This upcoming industrial milestone will clear the way for testing to demonstrate the system’s reliability and maturity, and also provide data for certification – particularly in the areas of extension-retraction, braking and steering.
