Westbury, NY – Arkwin Industries Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of precision aerospace hydraulic and fuel system components, will be supplying the Landing Gear Control Valve to Airbus Defence and Space for a variant of the C-295.
The C-295 is a twin-turboprop tactical military transport aircraft. It is derived from the CASA/IPTN CN-235, but with an extended fuselage that allows for 50% more cargo capacity and new turboprop engines. The Landing Gear Control Valve (LGCV) provides directional control and sequencing for the landing gear doors, uplocks, and struts. The landing gears are hydraulically operated to extend and retract as controlled by the LGCV. The LGCV also includes a mechanical override to enable gear extension in the event of a loss of hydraulic pressure.
