BFGoodrich Aerospace's Aircraft Integrated Systems division has been selected to supply upgraded fuel-quantity indication systems (FQIS) for four Atlas Air Boeing 747-200s which are due to be converted into freighters at the Boeing Modification Responsibility Center in Wichita, Kansas.

The FQIS retrofit is based on the system developed for the 747-400. It offers improved accuracy and reliability compared with systems on earlier 747s, claims Akron, Ohio-based BFGoodrich. The retrofit is installed on 40 aircraft in service with three carriers.

Meanwhile, Germany's Air Berlin has chosen BFGoodrich wheels and brakes for six Boeing 737-800s, deliveries of which are due to begin in 1998.
