Parker Aerospace’s Advanced Systems Contribute To Successful Flights Of Bombardier’s CSeries Aircraft

Parker Aerospace extends its congratulations to Bombardier Aerospace upon the company’s successful start of the CSeries* aircraft’s flight test program. Parker provides four key systems on the CSeries, including flight control, hydraulic, fuel, and fuel tank inerting. The CSeries flew for the first time on September 16, 2013.

As a systems provider, Parker Aerospace is responsible for architecture development, system sizing and analysis, equipment development and qualification, and integration testing supporting overall aircraft certification for all four systems.

“We congratulate Bombardier as it celebrates the exciting start of the CSeries aircraft’s flight test program,” remarked Parker Aerospace President Roger Sherrard. “Parker is proud to support this new family of aircraft with four systems and believe our advanced technologies will help to make the CSeries aircraft a strong competitor in the marketplace.”

Parker’s fly-by-wire flight control system is a complete, stick-to-surface system. Fly-by-wire flight controls replace earlier, more conventional hydro-mechanical flight control systems that use a series of pulleys and or rods that directly control flight surfaces. Parker’s fly-by-wire system provides easier installation and increased functionality. With fly-by-wire flight control, pilot inputs are interpreted by sophisticated on-board computers to ensure that the signals being sent to the control surfaces optimize the aircraft’s performance.

Parker Aerospace Control Systems Division Vice President and General Manager Frank Dubey commented, “Parker is honored to have developed the complete fly-by-wire flight control system for the CSeries aircraft. Parker’s advanced systems integration laboratory was used to evaluate system performance, helping to control cost and reduce development time and overall risk.”

Parker Aerospace is responsible for the design and manufacture of the CSeries aircraft’s hydraulic system, providing the functions necessary to power and control the airliner’s flight control system, landing gear and steering system, and thrust-reverser system. This is Parker’s fifth major hydraulic system platform jointly developed with Bombardier Aerospace.

Parker Aerospace has also designed the fuel system for the CSeries aircraft. Parker supplies equipment that provides multiple functions for the aircraft’s fuel system, including refueling and defueling, transfer, engine feed, fuel tank venting, and fuel quantity measurement. As the fuel system supplier, Parker Aerospace is responsible for architecture development, system sizing and analysis, equipment development and qualification, and integration testing that supports overall aircraft certification.

Parker Aerospace’s fuel tank inerting system uses air separation modules with patented fibers that generate nitrogen-enriched air by removing the oxygen molecules from an air source and distributing the remaining nitrogen to all aircraft fuel tanks.

As the system supplier, Parker Aerospace has applied proprietary tools for inerting system sizing, analysis, and integration testing that supports overall aircraft certification.
