Lufthansa Technik launches total landing gear support\

Lufthansa Technik is offering total landing-gear support (TLS) from aircraft purchase through resale. TLS covers the landing gear over its entire life and assumes full responsibility from the moment the aircraft is purchased, including AOG support, overhaul, exchange gear, leasing and loans, through to resale. The company has set up a dedicated landing gear services product division with facilities in Hamburg, Hawker Pacific Aerospace in Los Angeles and London, and Ameco Beijing.

“TLS is quite cost-effective, especially for smaller fleets, due to the reluctance
to purchase a very expensive spare landing gear,” said Klaus Köster, head of Lufthansa Technik’s landing gear services business and president and CEO of Hawker Pacific Aerospace.

TLS is offered for Raytheon Hawker 800s and Gulfstreams in addition to a wide range of regional and airline aircraft.
