Headquartered in Akron, Ohio, Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems (MABS) manufactures a wide range of braking systems for aircraft in commercial, business and military sectors. The company has been awarded a contract to provide the autobrake system for the Gulfstream G650 and G650ER ultra long-range aircraft. The system will become standard for future production aircraft and introduced via the Gulfstream service network to existing aircraft. Meggitt (Booth 3070) provides the brakes for the entire in-service and in-production Gulfstream portfolio.

A partnership between FlightSafety International (FSI) and Gulfstream has created two new science-based flight crew training courses. One focuses on rejected takeoffs, presenting the flight crew with as many as 18 different V1 abort scenarios requiring a decision to continue or abort the takeoff. The second course reviews the physics of energy management during the aircraft descent, helping pilots to avoid unstabilized approaches.

A proposed Learjet 60 airworthiness directive

January 25, 2013 - 11:55am

Flight operations of the F-35B short takeoff/vertical landing (Stovl) variant of the Joint Strike Fighter remained suspended this week as U.S. military and contractor engineering teams investigated the cause of an engine fueldraulic line failure in a test aircraft at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The fueldraulic line is part of the fuel-based hydraulic system that controls the actuators of the F-35B’s vectoring exhaust system. The grounding did not affect the F-35A and C models, respectively, the conventional takeoff and carrier variants.

The Naples Airport Authority reopened Runway 5/23 late last week after paving the safety areas at both ends of the airport’s primary runway. The runway was closed since July 25, but the project was completed a few days ahead of schedule and under budget, the authority said. The safety areas provide more room for aborted takeoffs and other emergencies and extends the runway’s declared takeoff distance from 5,000 to 5,800 feet.

Dassault Falcon 20C, Eagle, Colo., Jan. 8, 2010–The Board ruled that the aborted takeoff accident was caused by the flight crew's improper preflight inspection and failure to remove the main landing gear chock, resulting in damage to and subsequent failure of the main landing gear tire during the takeoff roll. The Mexican-registered twinjet was substantially damaged in the crash.

Bombardier Learjet 55, Casper, Wyo., March 17, 2009–The flight crew’s failure to follow manufacturer’s emergency procedures for a high-energy stop inspection following a rejected takeoff was to blame for the accident, which damaged the Canadian-registered twinjet after a second takeoff attempt.

Yesterday the NTSB held a public meeting to issue the probable cause of a Learjet 60 runway overrun accident on Sept. 19, 2008. Both pilots and two of four passengers were killed when the Learjet, operated by Global Exec Aviation, overran Runway 11 during a rejected takeoff at Columbia Metropolitan Airport in South Carolina. One key issue in the accident was tire pressure.
