Along with landing gear, aircraft wheels and brakes are subject to extreme forces, stress, as well as wear and tear from general operation and the environment. Nextant specializes in overhauling and repairing aircraft wheel and brake components. Our seasoned technicians have performed hundreds of wheel and brake overhauls and repairs. Our goal is to minimize downtime while providing the highest quality services, all while saving you money.
The overhaul process begins with a complete disassembly, removal of paint, cleaning, and then a visual inspection. Tolerances are measured and compared to OEM specifications. Non-destructive testing is performed to look for cracks, fractures, and corrosion that may not be visible during initial inspection. Repairs are performed and parts are replaced if needed. Before reassembly, brake and wheel parts are painted in house, reassembled, and returned to service.
Experts you can count on. Navigating the requirements for an STC or PMA can be daunting. On site technical staff, including Designated Engineering Representatives (DER) and Designated Airworthiness Representatives (DAR) complete the design, testing, engineering, prototype and production needed – more than 28 completed to date.
