Goodrich Supplying Airbus A350 Data Systems

Aircraft parts maker will provide Airbus with air data and ice detection systems for its new A350 Xtra Wide-Body commercial plane.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Aircraft parts maker Goodrich Corp. said Wednesday it will provide Airbus with air data and ice detection systems for its new A350 Xtra Wide-Body commercial plane.

The air data system provides information used by the aircraft's flight control and pilot display systems. The ice detection system warns of potential ice buildup so the flight crew can start the plane's ice protection system at the appropriate time.

The orders are anticipated to produce more than $600 million in original equipment and aftermarket revenue over 20 years.

Goodrich shares rose 12 cents to $50.16 in trading after the opening bell.
