Airbus is the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer whose customer focus, commercial know-how, technological leadership and manufacturing efficiency have propelled it to the forefront of the industry.
Our speakers are two Airbus employees - Linda O’Brien and Terence Frost.
Linda has been working at Airbus for eleven years and is currently the ATA32 Integrator for the A380 Programme responsible for technical integration of the Landing Gear and its Systems into the Aircraft.
Terence has been working at Airbus for sixteen years and is currently the Head of the Design Analysis Group in the Landing Gear Centre of Competence.
Both Terry and Linda have experience in landing gear design and in-service engineering support. The commonality between their jobs is to make the landing gear design even more reliable, cost-efficient and innovative. One of their most exciting challenges has been the development and certification of the double-deck Airbus aircraft known as the A380.This aircraft is now in service, taking thousands of people to happy places, whilst the engineering team in Filton is working to support the airlines on a day to day basis to ensure that each aircraft meet its operational reliability target. The team is also dedicated to improve the design and operability of the A380 landing gear to offer an even more cost-effective and reliable product.
Linda and Terry will take us through the fantastic journey of A380, focussing on the development of the landing gear systems and equipment. They will also show us how a myriad of skills in Airbus engineering tackle in-service issues to ensure the safety and satisfaction of their customers at all time.After this event, you might just want to jump on an A380 aircraft to experience the comfort of an Airbus aircraft and share everything you learnt with the person sat next to you!
