Piper Arrow Landing Gear
Piper Arrow Landing Gear


Redesigned PA28R-201 main landing gear
A redesigned main landing gear assembly, for the Piper Arrow PA28R-201 aircraft, which was first designed in the year 1979.
The design of this new landing gear has been optimised to reduce its weight by 12%, while still complying with F.A.R. standards and critical condition requirements.
The landing gear for the Piper Arrow aircraft was redesigned as part of the curriculum of a course titled “Mechanical Engineering Design Project” at Concordia University. The students were presented with the challenge to devise a method to reduce the weight of the landing gear while still maintaining its original design constrains and requirements.  My group and I reduced the weight by focusing on reshaping the gear fork, so to increase its area moment of inertia factor, and thinning its walls.
My involvement with this project was to design and model the gear fork and the wheel assembly.
