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 performance requirements.


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.
