Flight control actuation systems and components

Parker Aerospace is the number-one stick-to-surface flight control system provider in the world, and a global leader in fly-by-wire flight controls. Our systems pedigree is over three decades long and our overall experience nearly a century deep in both military and civilian applications. Flight control

Flight control equipment and solutions

Flight Control innovations

Parker Aerospace provides full stick-to-surface flight control systems for these aircraft: Airbus A220; Bombardier Global 7000 and Global 8000; Embraer Legacy 450 and 500.
Our fly-by-wire primary and secondary flight controls have been in civil and military applications for decades, providing unparalleled performance and reliability.
Lockheed Martin F-22
The product of two-plus decades of research, development, and flight-tested reliability, Parker electrostatic actuators (EHAs) and electrical backup hydraulic actuators (EBHAs) lower system weight, decrease power consumption, and reduce lifecycle costs.
Parker's adaptable and scalable EMA equipment, such as that for Embraer's Phenom, offer the benefit of more affordable systems with less lead time. We also provide EMA systems for the Raytheon/Lockheed Martin Javelin missile, Lockheed Martin Polecat, and many other military and civilian platforms.
Embraer Phenom
Parker's flight control systems integration laboratories (SILs) allow us to bring subsystems and full stick-to-surface systems to market faster and more cost effectively. SILs allow for complete development and integration, and aid in the certification of modular, fly-by-wire flight control systems.

Inerting Subsystems

With more than 50 years of experience in the complex science of fuel tank fire suppression, Parker is the world leader in inerting systems used in both military and commercial markets. Our commercial fuel tank inerting equipment is used by more than 85% of the transport aircraft in production today, on 15 major platforms. Inerting

Inerting innovations

Catalytic inerting enables simpler and lighter fuel tank inerting systems. Requiring no bleed air, catalytic inerting offers a significant advantage for aircraft with limited available bleed air. Parker Aerospace and PHYRE Technologies are teaming to bring catalytic inerting to the marketplace.
Catalytic inerting
1) Ullage gas is drawn from fuel tank. 2) Gas stream is reacted in a catalyst. 3) Gas stream is cooled and water removed. 4) Nitrogen and inert products of reaction returned to the fuel tank.
Catalytic inerting
With 50+ years of military and commercial inerting technology leadership, no other company can match the depth or breadth of our fuel tank inerting system experience. It started in the 1960s with stored-gas and on-board inert gas generating systems, and today features permeable membrane systems.

Hydraulic Systems and Components

As the leading provider of fully integrated hydraulic systems and advanced hydromechanical and electromechanical subsystems and components, Parker Aerospace offers the talent and resources our customers count on for program success. Our range of system functions includes hydraulic rotating products, hydraulic utility products, and actuation systems. Hydraulic

Hydraulic equipment and solutions

Hydraulic innovations

Partnering with Parker's Filtration Group, Parker Aerospace offers onboard filtration and fluid condition monitoring solutions to help ensure safe operation, lower weight, protect flight-critical components, and reduce maintenance costs while providing robust protection against system contamination.
Filtration: adding life to hydraulic systems
The controller powers hydraulic motor pumps, is DO178/DO254 compatible in commercial aircraft, and features a rugged, environmentally sealed, and explosion-proof enclosure that provides for the self-removal of heat. The controller monitors health and reports it to the aircraft operating system.
We took the lead to work with 787 partners to preassemble 60 major components, plus hundreds of structural elements and fasteners, into a single deliverable unit. The module is engineered to quickly interface with the wing for simplified installation, while reducing supply chain infrastructure.
