1 November 2008

Moog Inc. announced that its Aircraft Group was selected by Airbus to supply flight control actuation for the A350 XWB High Lift System. The A350 XWB (Extra Wide-Body) family is Airbus' response to widespread market demand for a series of highly efficient medium-capacity long-range wide-body aircraft. Moog will supply the Trailing Edge actuation system including the Power Control Unit, inboard and outboard Geared Rotary Actuators, Gearboxes, Wing Tip Brakes and other miscellaneous components.

"We were delighted to hear of our selection as a key supplier on the A350 XWB High Lift System," said Warren Johnson, President of Moog's Aircraft Group. "This is our first High Lift win with Airbus and represents the culmination of a lot of hard work. Coupled with our win on the Primary Flight Control Actuation System last fall, this underscores our position as a leading supplier of complete flight control systems to the global aircraft market."
