Title
Effects of Extremely Cold Temperature on Landing Gear Operation
Scope
Provide information and guidance for landing gear operation in cold temperature environment. Covers all operational aspects on ground and in flight. Includes effects on: tires, wheels, brakes, shock strut, seals, and actuation.
Rationale
This AIR will provide information and guidance for landing gear operation in cold temperature environment. This information will explain the effects of extremely cold temperature on landing gear performance and actuation. Cold temperature affects hydraulic fluid and pneumatic properties, which in turn affect shock strut and tire performance during landing and ground operations, as well as gear retraction and extension. This information is intended to aid the design process as well as operation and maintenance considerations.
