Michelin selected as OE supplier for Cirrus Aircraft

Michelin has become the new original-equipment provider for Cirrus Aircraft.

All Cirrus Aircraft will now be equipped with Michelin Air tyres, including the recently developed Michelin Air tubeless sizes for Cirrus SR Series aircraft.

Cirrus Aircraft is  the world’s leading manufacturer of piston aircraft and maker of the world’s first single-engine Personal Jet, the Vision Jet.

“Michelin is proud to be the tyre of choice for Cirrus Aircraft,” said Robert Sevener, Michelin global lead, general aviation tires. “Cirrus and Michelin are two companies that strive for technological leadership in the world of mobility. Leading with innovation since the beginning, the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System, Cirrus Aircraft’s SR Series and the Vision Jet are a perfect fit for Michelin’s industry-leading tyres technologies.”

The French tyre make introduced the world’s first radial aircraft tyre in 1981 and  Today, it manufactures a broad line of radial (Michelin Air X) and bias-ply (Michelin Air) aircraft tyres for commercial, regional, military and general-aviation aircraft.

The Michelin Air, a line of bias tyres, is designed to provide the perfect blend of performance and cost for piston, turbo-prop and jet applications. A wide range of sizes, both tubeless and tubed, are available to cover popular general-aviation fitments.

The Michelin Air X is offered in more radial sizes than all other aircraft-tire brands combined, including 18 sizes for business jets. Compared to bias-ply technology, the Michelin Air X provides the advantages of more landings per tread, and measurable fuel savings. The radial tire offers a 20- to 30-percent weight reduction over comparable bias tyres, an extra-strong carcass to restrict tyre expansion, an optimized tread design for cut resistance, customized rubber compounds for ozone and ultraviolet light protection and a flexible casing for smoother taxis, take-offs and landings that improve passenger comfort.
