With more than 50 permanent Engineers, our Engineering department features full Design and Qualification capabilities for Landing Gear and Actuation Systems and Primary Composite Structures, offering the right solution for commercial, defense, fixed and rotary wing for small/mid size aircraft market.

Experience acquired on international programs as Prime and Sub Contractor provide strong and consolidated engineering capability matured since 1936 as build to print and since 1998 as build to spec.

The Engineering Team features capabilities and competencies in the field of:

Systems and Structures Engineering: design and development of complete systems and structural parts/assemblies from conceptual design and architectures definition, through 3D modelling, kineto-dynamic analyses, sizing and performances, loads calculation, fatigue and damage tolerance analyses, linear and non-linear FEA, and impact analyses.

Systems and Structures Testing: Full qualification of Landing Gear systems, Hydro/Electro Mechanical Systems and certification of composite structural components. Drop test up to 10 tons at a sink speed of 5 m/s, full static and fatigue test, environmental testing in climatic chambers ranging from -70°C to +180°C relative humidity included, material (metal and composite) characterization and certification.

Engineering internal organization is able to meet Customers demanding requirements and ensuring high level of product quality and safety. Systems Engineers have skill to work in international joint definition teams to develop a customized product since the earliest phases of definition with a “design to cost and weight” approach in compliance with the customer’s technical specifications and airworthiness rules.

Project management approach is used since the earliest phases of the new programs, through the definition of WBS key milestones, dedicated planning, resources allocation, risk assessment and mitigation plan.
