CHARLOTTE, N.C. – FARNBOROUGH AIR SHOW - UTC Aerospace Systems has been selected by Airbus to supply new wheels and carbon brakes for A320neo family aircraft, through its Landing Systems facility in Troy, Ohio. The equipment is scheduled to enter into service in 2015 on the current A320 family of aircraft. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The new wheels and brakes are designed as a product improvement and in parallel to today's existing design and will be introduced with compatibility across the current A318/A319/A320 and A319/A320neo platforms. The new equipment includes a larger carbon sink mass and the next generation oxidation protection system. The brake and wheel structures of the new equipment are optimized for weight and performance. The brakes use proprietary DURACARB® carbon heat sink material which allows UTC Aerospace to provide significant cost savings for operators through improved brake life.

"We are confident the A320neo will be a great success and we are pleased the aircraft will be offered with our wheel and brake equipment," said Jim Wharton, senior vice president, Landing Systems. "Airlines flying A320neo aircraft with UTC Aerospace Systems wheels and brakes will have the advantage of longer intervals between overhauls."

UTC Aerospace Systems designs, manufactures and services integrated systems and components for the aerospace and defense industries. UTC Aerospace Systems supports a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and customer service facilities

United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Connecticut, provides high technology products and services to the building and aerospace industries.
