Liebherr Aerospace to overhaul E190 landing gears for TAME

TAME EP Linea Aerea del Ecuador has selected Liebherr Aerospace to overhaul the landing gear systems of its Embraer 190s.TAME’s E190s were reaching the time between overhaul, which had been set at 20,000 flight cycles (or 10 calendar years) by its Maintenance Review Board. Liebherr is the OEM and system integrator for E190 landing gear systems and will provide the airline with exchange gear sets for the aircraft.Liebherr noted that after such a large number of cycles, the overhauls will provide the company with valuable insight into the operating performance of the E190 landing gear system, allowing it to further enhance the engineering and logistics for the large volume of overhauls of this system due in the near future.The gears are being serviced at the company’s Saline site in Michigan, USA, and will be rotated into Liebherr’s Global Access Pool and will be used in the future to support customers that place orders for overhauls with Liebherr.
