Meggitt may not be a household
name, but if you're a frequent traveler,
chances are that you've come across
some of our equipment. That's
because some 73,000 aircraft rely on
our critical components. For instance,
while most passengers may never think
about it, landing an aircraft safely on
a handful of wheels is quite a feat. A
passenger plane can weigh over 700
tons and comes to a stop in less than
one kilometer. The temperature of the
wheels and brakes surge from zero to
1800 degrees centigrade in a matter of

And brakes are just the beginning.
Our fire detection and suppression
systems are rarely used but are vitally
important if a fire occurs during
flight. Our unique flow-metering
design enables the slow and accurate
release of a suppression agent. We
are also developing green suppression
materials, replacing halon gas with
an environmentally friendly
extinguishing agent.

Many of the pilots who will fly the aircraft
