UTC Aerospace Systems Selected By Aeroflot To Provide Wheels And Carbon Brakes On 737NG Fleet

Stocks in this article: UTX

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems has been selected by Aeroflot, Russia's flagship airline, to supply the wheels and carbon brakes for its new fleet of 50 Boeing 737-800 Next Generation aircraft.  UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), will provide the equipment through its Wheels & Brakes business in Troy, Ohio.  The first aircraft is scheduled for delivery in September, 2013.

The 737 Next Generation carbon brakes use proprietary DURACARB® carbon heat sink material.  The DURACARB® carbon provides exceptional brake performance and a 35 percent brake life advantage over competitive products.  The wheels and carbon brakes provide a weight savings of approximately 700 pounds (318kg) per aircraft compared to high capacity steel brakes.

"This latest contract with Aeroflot is a nice addition to the previously announced B777ER selection," said Cory May, vice president of commercial programs, Wheels & Brakes. "We are pleased to provide Aeroflot with a lower total cost of ownership for their 737 Next Generation fleet."

"We enjoy excellent product performance, reliability and customer support on our current fleets equipped from UTC Aerospace Systems," stated Igor Parakhin, technical director for Aeroflot Russian Airlines.  "We look forward to realizing the benefits associated with their brake life advantage on our new 737-800 Next Generation fleet."

Aeroflot Russian Airlines is the largest airline of the Russian Federation.  Aeroflot operates domestic and international passenger services covering a network of 122 cities in 52 countries.   As the leading Russian airline, Aeroflot is focused on ecological balance in all its operational areas.  Aeroflot is also committed to social initiatives including supporting the Olympic Movement as the General Partner for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games.

UTC Aerospace Systems designs, manufactures and services integrated systems and components for the aerospace and defense industries.  UTC Aerospace Systems supports a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and customer service facilities.
