UTC Aerospace Systems, a part of United Technologies Corp ( UTX ), has been selected by Airbus to supply new wheels and carbon brakes for A320neo family aircraft. The components, supplied through its landing systems facility in Troy, Ohio, are scheduled to commence into service in 2015.

The new wheels and brakes are designed as an enhancement to existing products and will be compatible across various neo platforms. Also, the aircraft flying with UTC Aerospace Systems' wheels and brakes will have the advantage of longer intervals between overhauls.
