Las Vegas, October 11, 2011 (NBAA Booth N2721)

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty (Safran group) is strengthening its relationship with Bombardier*, having been selected as the landing gear system supplier for the Global 7000* and Global 8000* aircraft. The scope of supply includes the main and nose landing gears, nose wheel steering, landing gear control and indication as well as alternate extension systems.

This is the latest in a long series of integrated landing systems solutions offered by Messier-Bugatti-Dowty. In the late 1990s, the company marked an industry first with the development of the first fully integrated landing gear system for Bombardier's original Global Express* aircraft.

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty offers a unique experience as an integrated landing system supplier, reducing the interface management effort required by the aircraft manufacturer.

The company is a supplier to Bombardier for its Challenger 300*, Global 5000*, Global 6000* and Learjet 85* business jets.

"As a supplier for Bombardier Aerospace's business jet portfolio for more than a decade, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty is pleased to continue our collaboration on this prestigious aircraft," says Gilles Bouctot, COO Messier-Bugatti-Dowty.
