Bombardier Aerospace recently flew a Global 5000 testbed with an all-electric braking system, which the Canadian company claims is a civil aviation first. The testing lasted more than seven hours and included five landings and a series of high-speed braked ground runs. The demonstrator aircraft was equipped with Meggitt’s EBrake electric braking system and Messier-Dowty’s landing gear with electric brake wiring harnesses. According to a spokesman, the electronic braking system is being tested for the new C Series regional jet.
