Regional Aircraft Brake Control Systems
Hydro-Aire developed the first antiskid system for a regional aircraft by
modifying an existing commercial system for installation on a Nissan YS-11.
Hydro-Aire now supplies a majority of the antiskid and brake control systems for
all of the major regional aircraft manufacturers.
Regional aircraft cover a significant
range of applications from 19 passenger turbo-prop aircraft with relatively
short range, through the 70 passenger longer range turbo-prop categories, as
well as up to the 100+ passenger regional jet aircraft and extended range
missions. Regional aircraft antiskid and brake control systems similarly cover a
wide range of landing velocities, landing weights, landing gears, brakes and
Hydro-Aire has developed Mark III
(analog), Mark IV (digital) and Mark V (Brake-by-Wire) antiskid and brake
control systems for regional aircraft with paired and individual wheel control
to suit particular aircraft performance requirements.
