Safran Safran Landing Systems ensure the landing system design, manufacture and support for the AM. First military transport aircraft of the 21st century, the AM is a modern, multi-role military airlifter, designed to handle more than twice the payload and volume of the aircraft it will replace.

The AM is capable of performing both strategic and tactical missions, as well as tanking o perations. Selected in , Safran Landing Systems is responsible for managing the design, development, manufacturing, integration, qualification and support of the AM landing gear system.

The landing gear system encompasses the dressed nose and main landing gears fitted with wheels and carbon brakes, the extension and retraction system, kneeling system as well as the steering system. This twelve-wheel configuration contains the "high flotation" characteristics necessary for landings on unprepared terrain. To meet this requirement, the main landing gear shock absorbers have been designed to ensure a minimum distance between the ground and aircraft structure whatever the loading conditions, thus preserving the integrity of the aircraft structure.

In terms of new materials, various major structural parts of the AM landing gear are in titanium, including the trailing arm. Regarding the systems integration, for the first time Airbus Defence and Space has delegated responsibility for the landing systems test bench activities directly to the supplier. The program marked key milestones on 26 July with the rollout of the first aircraft from its final assembly line in Seville, Spain, and on 11 December with the first flight.



The Airbus AM can airlift in its huge freight keep most of the crucial army devices which do not fit any longer in past creation ideal airlifters such as huge chopper or an huge infantry battling automobile or an huge comfort excavator. The Airbus AM allows cost-effective and fast reaction to downturn. The Airbus AM made its first journey on 11 Dec The first manufacturing airplane was sent to the Italy Air Power in Aug and in service a year after. Airbus AM Atlas Specs Previous creation ideal airlifters have excellent ideal efficiency but cannot bring the outsize army and comfort relief plenty because their freight keeps are too small. Present ideal airplane are perfect outsize-load airlifters but are very pricey and have restricted ideal capability as they cannot function from smooth areas.
