Aircraft equipment

The world’s second largest aircraft equipment manufacturer, Safran supplies airframers with key systems including landing gear, wheels and brakes, wiring, avionics, navigation systems, evacuation systems and much more. In aviation history, its technologies have often been cutting-edge advancements. Now, the Group’s equipment is becoming lighter and going electric to help make air travel safer and more environmentally friendly.

Landing systems

Safran designs, produces and supports landing gear, wheels, brakes and complete landing systems for commercial mainline and regional airplanes, helicopters and business and military aircraft. 

Calling on our advanced engineering skills, we provide products for a number of today’s leading aircraft, including the Airbus A320, A320neo, A330, A350 XWB and A400M, the Boeing 737 Next-Generation, 737 MAX, 777 and 787 Dreamliner, the Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon, F-18 and other fighters, and many more. Back in the 1980s, Safran pioneered the use of carbon brakes on aircraft as a higher-performance replacement for conventional steel brakes. This technical revolution resulted in lighter weight, faster cooling and more durable brakes.

Electrical systems

Safran has developed acknowledged expertise in all aircraft electrical systems, including power generation, distribution and conversion, electrical wiring interconnect systems (EWIS), including clamps and wiring protection, electric motors and system integration. The world leader in aircraft wiring, we are actively involved in all aspects of “more electric” aircraft, as well as hybrid and all-electric propulsion systems on new platforms such as electrical vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft – with testing already underway on some aircraft of this type.
