Goodrich Introduces New Lighter-Weight Wheels and Brakes for the Boeing 777 Fleet

-- New main wheels and brakes will provide weight and cost savings for airline operators

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 19, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has introduced new lighter-weight main wheel and brake assemblies for Boeing 777-200LR, 777 Freighter, and 777-300ER airplane models. The new configuration wheels and brakes provide a weight savings of 260 pounds (118 kg) per airplane, resulting in reduced fuel costs for 777 operators. The new equipment is now standard on 777 airplanes delivered with Goodrich equipment, and will be available in the aftermarket starting in January 2011.

The new assemblies are approved by Boeing, and are intermixable with existing Goodrich wheel and brake assemblies for the 777-200LR, 777 Freighter, and 777-300ER.   In addition, the new brake will continue to provide a 35% brake life advantage over competitive products through the use of Goodrich's latest DURACARB(R) carbon brake disk material.

Jim Wharton, vice president of sales and program management for Goodrich Aircraft Wheels and Brakes, said, "This is another example of our commitment to continuously improve the products and services we provide to our airline customers.  The introduction of these new Boeing 777 wheels and brakes will allow our existing and future customers to realize weight and fuel savings and reduce their cost of operation."
