Southwest chooses Goodrich carbon brakes, wheels and MRO services

Southwest Airlines has selected Goodrich to provide carbon brakes, wheels and maintenance, repair and overhaul services on its new fleet of Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Goodrich's 737 Next Generation carbon brake offers a 35% brake life advantage over its competition, the manufacturer says.

The company adds that the wheels and carbon brakes provide a weight savings of approximately 700 pounds (318kg) per aircraft compared to high capacity steel brakes.

The first of Southwest's new 737-800 fleet was delivered in March 2012.
