Boeing selects Collins Aerospace for F-15EX wheels and brakes

Boeing has selected Collins Aerospace to supply boltless wheels and carbon brakes for lots one through three of the F-15EX aircraft produced for the US Air Force. Collins equipment replaces aging platform wheels and brakes on Boeing’s production line.

Collins worked closely with the US Air Force on the Wheel and Brake System Improvement (WBSI) program to design, develop, and qualify the F-15’s wheels and brakes, while obtaining installation approval from Boeing for the F-15C/D and F-15E variant of the aircraft.

After five years in service, Collins wheels and brakes continue to meet or exceed all US Air Force performance standards under the WBSI program. Collins set out to reduce life-cycle cost over the life of the aircraft while increasing the durability of the wheels and carbon brakes.
