Dowty Aerospace, part of the UK-based TI Group, has won a multi-million dollar contract to supply high lift systems equipment for the new Boeing 767-400ER.

Dowty Aerospace's Hydraulics and Actuation business will develop these components, which include trailing-edge rotary actuators and the leading edge offset gear boxes.

Dowty Aerospace has won a number of orders from Boeing recently, including the primary flight control system for the revolutionary Bell Boeing 609 tiltrotor VTOL transport, and primary flight control actuators for the Boeing Joint Strike Fighter Concept Demonstrator Programme.

Sister company Messier-Dowty has also been chosen to supply landing gear to both these projects.
