Stirling Dynamics has been awarded a new contract from WheelTug to deliver a new nose wheel design for the Boeing 737NG family of aircraft: this will be fitted with the WheelTug system.

Stirling was chosen to carry out the work because of its niche capabilities in landing gear design and analysis. Under this contract, the company will be helping WheelTug design and achieve certification for a brand new landing gear nose wheel. Its engineering team will draw on the company’s core capabilities in reverse engineering, wheel analysis, landing gear analysis, safety analysis and structural stress analysis.

On this new contract, Stirling’s Aerospace Business Manager, Bandula Pathinayake commented: “We are proud to work on this innovative technology with the WheelTug team; this new contract is another step forward in seeing this innovative technology reaching the marketplace.”
