Parker Aerospace signed an agreement at Farnborough to supply fly-by-wire flight control actuation systems on AVIC Aircraft's MA700 regional turboprop, Parker announces.

Parker will design and develop the flight control actuation system in partnership with Chinese company FACRI Actuation Systems, Parker says.

The companies have already collaborated to develop the actuation system on the Comac C919, and Parker also provides the MA700's hydraulic system and landing gear servo valves, it says.

Parker also recently announced it signed a deal to supply Daher with redesigned landing gear components for Daher's TBM900. Those components include main and nose wheels, main brakes, master cylinders and parking brake valves, Parker says.

The company has supplied TBM900 brakes since that aircraft entered production in 1990.

"Parker will be providing redesigned main wheels and brakes that will reduce the overall weight of the landing gear," the company says.
