Landing Gear Uplock


Tactair Landing Gear/Door Uplocks utilize a simple and robust mechanical latching design for retaining the Landing Gear in the 'Up' position.  The latching design includes two methods of release for lowering the landing gear, a normal and alternate mode.  In the normal mode, a hydraulic actuator is used to release the landing gear in the normal mode of operation.  In the alternate mode, a manual release cable is used to actuate the mechanical release into the uplock.


Tactair uplocks feature a design with fully independent normal and alternate release methods.  Landing gear position indication is incorporated to communicate 'locked' or 'unlocked' status to the aircraft systems.  Housings can be designed to either carry load or pass load directly to the airframe through the hook.  All contact surfaces are treated to minimize wear and provide longevity.
