Functional tests

We are the leading center for designing and testing aircraft landing gear in Poland. A significant part of the landing gears of aircraft and helicopters manufactured in Polish factories has been designed and tested in our laboratory, which offers a set of comprehensive engineering services, such as design, analysis, testing and supervision over the execution of prototypes. We run, among others testings of the landing gears, brakes and other structures in the scope of:

  • energy intensity,
  • static strength,
  • dynamic and fatigue,
  • dynamic characteristics,
  • functional,
  • resistance to shock loads in accordance with FAR, EASA, MIL, AP regulations.

We have accreditation of the Polish Center for Accreditation with the number AB-131.

Among the goals we set for ourselves is the development of technology, proposing new construction and technological solutions, their verification with the use of testing methods, construction of tests beds and supervision over the implementation of prototypes of technology demonstrators.
