  • Landing Gear (Aeroindustry)
OBS

Retractable landing gear may be retracted manually, electrically, or hydraulically. The main struts of retractable landing gear are mounted on trunnions and bearings so that they can easily be swung upward into the fuselage or wing. The retracting mechanism may be a jackscrew arrangement, an electric-motor-operated screw or gear system, or a hydraulic actuating cylinder connected to suitable linking devices.

OBS

Landing gear may be classified as either fixed or retractable, and it may also be classified according to arrangement on the aircraft. In this case we may say that the two principal arrangements are conventional and tricycle.
