Brakes for 787 - Safran or Goodrich?

Fri Feb 28, 2020 3:49 pm

From my heavy googling, it appears that buyers of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner can choose between brakes made by Safran and brakes made by Goodrich/UTC/Collins. Anybody know how there came to be two competing manufacturers of brakes for this aircraft? Why would buyers choose one over the other?

I think that is fairly typical when you purchase a new Boeing, be it avionics, galleys, engines, etc.

Do the different brakes have different specs (i.e. one have better stopping performance than the other)?
Whatever

Can't speak specifically to the 787, but the answer is yes, there are different brakes for some Boeings that increase the stopping power. I can poke around and if I can cite a specific example. The 767 comes to mind. Obviously the 767-300 has lighter brakes tha the 767-300ER.
