Mecaer America Inc., a Mecaer Group Company, has been officially selected by Diamond Aircraft to provide the landing gear system for the series production of the D-JET personal jet. Mecaer America’s scope of work includes design, certification testing, manufacturing and after-sale support of the nose and main landing gear.
“We are very pleased to announce our long-term agreement with Diamond Aircraft on the D-JET program,” Armando Sassoli, Mecaer America President and CEO said. “This is a very important step in Mecaer’s quest to become the world’s leading landing gear company in the light aircraft market niche.”
“Diamond Aircraft’s expertise in composite materials is impressive and we believe the D-JET has great potential,” said Giorgio Cozzolino, Mecaer America Director of Engineering. “Our objective is to deliver a state-of-art landing gear system with particular attention to environmental, technological and operational efficiencies.”
