United Technologies Corporation : UTC Aerospace Systems Selected by Aeroflot to Provide Wheels and Carbon Brakes on 777-300ER Fleet

01/22/2013 | 08:05am EST

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 22, 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 16 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The company will provide the equipment through its Wheels & Brakes business in Troy, Ohio. The first aircraft is scheduled for delivery in January, 2013. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The 777-300ER 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, producing significant cost savings for operators.

"The level of after sales support we have come to expect from UTC Aerospace Systems was a significant factor in our supplier selection criteria," stated Igor Parakhin, technical director for Aeroflot Russian Airlines. "We look forward to superior customer focus and exceptional brake life on our new 777-300ER fleet."

Aeroflot Russian Airlines is the largest airline of the Russian Federation. Aeroflot operates domestic and international passenger services covering a network of 116 cities in 52 countries.
