Cockpit & cabin

 

Ratier-Figeac is a center of excellence for electric flight controls (mini-stick controllers, throttle levers, rudder pedals) and for cabin equipment (door dampers, propeller brakes and rotor brakes).

The company has nearly 30 years of experience in cockpit equipment, which it develops in close collaboration with test pilots and airline pilots. More than 12,000 aircraft worldwide are currently fitted with its equipment. Ratier-Figeac’s experience, new developments and innovation enable the company to offer a comprehensive Pilot/Aircraft interface for all segments of the civil aircraft and military aircraft aeronautical markets.

Ratier-Figeac’s throttle levers and mini-stick controllers equip a large number of Airbus, Bombardier and Dassault cockpits. 

The company’s door dampers have clocked up more than 750 million flight hours on Airbus and Embraer fleets, and its propeller and rotor brakes have clocked up more than 13 million braking cycles on ATR, Eurocopter and Agusta Westland aircraft. 

The teams are currently developing all of the cockpit equipment for the Comac C919 and Irkut MC-21, as well as door dampers for the Bombardier Cseries. 

 

Side sticks

Le manche latéral est un ensemble électromécanique commandant l'avion en roulis et en profondeur, via des surfaces aérodynamiques situées sur l'aile. Une nouvelle génération de manches, dits "actifs", permet de coupler électriquement les manches pilote et copilote, mais aussi de retourner aux pilotes des efforts en fonction de la situation de vol.
