Hydraulics, Actuation, and Landing Gear

Hydraulic, Actuators and Controls are critical to the safety and functionality of an aircraft.  They are used to operate a wide variety of systems including landing gear, flight control surfaces, sensors, and brakes.  Their usefulness derives from their ability to take up a small amount of space, with corresponding low weight, while delivering significant power.  Controls may be powered by electric hydraulic or pneumatic pressure. They allow the pilot to operate a multitude of mechanical tasks quickly and reliably, resulting in a safer and steadier flight experience.
